When you're traveling through the digital world, it's trivial to leaf through thousands of images in a matter of minutes. I've seen a lot of stunning images of this iconic spot, but it wasn't until I was shivering my butt off in realfeel -18F during blue hour in the middle of a snowstorm that I considered making an image of the snow falling over the valley. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to go about this, because I couldn't come up with any examples to follow of falling snow photographed over a grand landscape. Nevertheless, the conditions were perfect, so I decided to give it a try. This is the result. I think it's my personal favorite image in my entire photographic career. I decided to go a lot more subtle and sensitive on this shot than with others of mine, so this is definitely out of my comfort zone. I'm really interested in seeing if this works for you all, and if there's anything you would do differently. This is not a monochrome image.
[note: the box in the upper right corner is from an edit whose mask i messed up. I can't replace the photo here, but the version in the store has been fixed.]
May the light be with you!!
