p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Waves of Light


Due to a longer then wanted extremely cold stretch of weather I haven't had many opportunities nor desire to get out to shoot. I did take a short sunset drive a little while back and even though I was wearing boots rated for -60 my feet were VERY cold! Luckily I had the car nearby. Which I almost couldn't get into as my key-fob remote froze and wouldn't unlock the car. I had to use the key setting off the alarm. Thankfully I was able to thaw the remote and get the car started. Ya, it was that damn cold! :S

My goal was to photograph snow drifts in the sunset light.

Here are my results. Post processed for impact!

Hope you enjoy!













Thanks for looking!

Damn, I get cold just looking at #2. I like the sharpness of the snow particles, and the purple light is very nice in #1. Nice that you were able to get out and capture something even in the dead of winter.

Hey Scott,

Yikes! That is sure cold...

Both of these are pretty cool, with #1 being a cool abstract and #2 being a cool shot too with the sun and the snow.

Every bit of snow is separate in the picture and that shows how great photography can catch elements so well! I love that you attempted such a thing in such cold weather and you got some great shots

#2 is fantastic. Was this a single shot or did you do focus stacking?

Love the texture and light on both specially your second image.

This a multi shot blend for dynamic light but not for focus. I sharpened the foreground significantly using the High Pass filter sharpening method. Then masked it in on the foreground only. Google High-Pass Sharpening if you are unfamiliar with this method.

Beautiful shots but -60 I can't imagine how cold that is.

Beautiful pair here, Scott. No favorite one as both are wonderful in their own right. Nicely done, indeed.

Me too for the second image, Scott.
Again I appreciate looking at images that someone besides me had to suffer to get .
Well done.
