These are from 2 weekends ago - I did not like them much when I first looked at them but when I looked back, they kind of grew on me. [plus my wolf shots kind of distracted me]

They were taken waiting for the sun to rise about 35km east of Jasper on the Yellowhead highway.

The wind was blowing like crazy and it was 10f or -10c. brrrrrr

Comments and feedback is appreciated. Scott

I like them all. I also like to start taking pictures when it is still dark. I especially like the view north.

It was worth the cold weather Scott. Stunning series.
From warm to cold to sunset to dawn...thanks for sharing!

ben egbert: Glad you like the North shot. The first one was really cold and dark - you can see the trees leaning in the background. I am still debating whether it is too centred top-bottom but the blues appealed to me. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Fred Miranda: Glad you like the series. They are more pastel with less features than I am used to taking of mountains. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Such dedication! It was -10 and windy here today - and I just was not tempted to go out with camera.

Anyway your efforts paid great dividends with some beautiful captures - number 2 and 3 are especially nice! #1 has me wishing there was more detail exposed in the shadows.

Looking forward to seeing more with your ZE 35mm f/1.4.

Robert Snow: Glad you like 4. This spot was the windiest and coldest of the day. I took my camera off at the end and put in in the car and the wind almost blew my heavy tripod into the river. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


dbehrens: On 1 I struggled to get the moon in without too much halo vs details. I will have to try again in processing. But glad you like 2,3. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Scott Kroeker: Glad you like them. It was a cold morning. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Number 3 is the winner for me. The intensity of the sky, plus the colour reflection in the water leading my eye up to the sky does it for me.

Certainly a wall hanger!!

And I recall your wolf shots, I can see why they were a distraction.

Regards.....Pete

Scott,

All are admirable; "facing north" strikes a cord, put it in your portfolio.

My favorite is #2. I love the appearance of snow-dusted mountains in blue hour light. Beautiful set.

pliukait: Glad you like it. It was the warmest shot modestly protected from the wind. The wolves were the highlight of my year. Thanks for the encouragement. Much appreciated. Scott

Wolf is below for others to see - I am proud of him.


nma: Glad you like "facing north". The blues were intense before the sun rose. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Oregon Gal: Thats a lot of favorites. Thanks for the encouragement. Much appreciated. Scott


philtax: Glad you like 2,3. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


Phrasikleia: Glad you like it. It was my favorite of the set. Much appreciated. Scott

3 & 4 for me.

Really an enjoyable set of images.

The wolf is in another category. Might add a smidge on the right and left.


Thanks for sharing.

Awesome images (as usual) Scott!
I'm torn as to favorites. I think I like the frozen shot #2 the best. Reminds me of time in Colorado.

While the wolf is looking at you, I bet it's seeing a hot dog!

Do you know, are those 100% wolf or hybrids?

martines34: The wolf was too close for more on the left and right with my 5diii/600. Glad you like 3,4. It was a cold morning. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott


ckcarr: I think 2 is my favorite of that morning as well. It has some unique and compelling colors.
[re the wolf - I prefer to be called "Mr Hot Dog" To my knowledge, the wolves around here do not interbreed with other species, they eat them. In Jasper there have been a number of pets on leashes that have been picked off by wolves.I think the interbreeding occurs in the east between coyotes and wolves where the wolves cannot find a mate because of a shortage of wolves.]
I am glad you like the landscapes. Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. Scott

Hey Scott? You didn't like them much at first?

These are really sweet shots. The only one that really doesn't do much for me is #1. But the other 3 really rock. I think my order of preference is #3 (that could be a painting), then #2 and then #4.

Great work here and worth the effort and frozen fingers.

Jim
