Congratulations to ArturS for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 23 votes - View Previous Winners


Mountains, mid winter, mid day, during the snowstorm. Can there be more perfect conditions for a winter landscape photo? Maybe there can, but for me it is almost as good as it can get. What I noticed while hiking in winter conditions is that the same view with clear skies gives an impression of space and visible landscape seems distant, sometimes even insignificant. But it all changes when the snowstorm sets in. Then the view becomes grandiose and very close to the observer. Small scenes like this one that are isolated by the barrier of clouds and fog shape into strong visual stimuli. Experiencing such conditions brings interesting emotional and visual sensation. I highly recommend getting out to exploit it.

So here you have: A photo from British Columbia's mountains, taken at the end of our 2016 winter season. Hope you can feel this fresh breeze of Canadian cold air delivered to FM in order to chill you during the hot summer

technical stuff: Nikon D810 plus lens 70-200 mm @ 200mm f/11 and 1/800 sec ISO100, no filters.

Comments as usually are highly appreciated!

There's a great sense of depth and atmosphere here. I love the overall mood; a perfectly titled piece.

Hey Artur,

This is a wonderful breath of fresh air as I sit here at a hot sweltering beach in Southern California!

Very nice work with this. I like the tighter comp, and the light is fantastic!

You have my vote.

Artur, this is an absolutely stunning photograph. The light, the textures, the clouds, the depth, yeah I agree it can't get much better. I have been snooping around here for about 3 months now, and this is one of the finest photographs I have seen posted.

Cheers

Considering that it's 109 f. here right now this is a fantastic image that makes me feel cool all over! Great image Artur, and perfect timing!

Elegant dude! I think this is the next most popular motif on the horizon line and images like this will do the inspiring! Congrats!

Stunning, gorgeous! Would have loved to witness such light.

Might prefer a veritcal ~4:5 crop of just the right-hand side, one that omits the black triangle of trees and just focuses on the sparse trees with the light above...

Thanks for suggestions. I tried different crops. This one as you see talks to me the most.
