Down in the valley it started only being a small dusting of snow and then quickly turned into a winter wonderland. The definition and detail that snow can bring out in a photograph can add so much visual appeal to the eye.
Although we lost most of our fall leaves (in a matter of half an hour), the contrast left by snow against the bare rocks is almost equally as beautiful.
Snow although beautiful can be an extremely difficult subject to photograph, due to its high contrast or lack of contrast at all depending. I love this time of year because there is just enough snow to get a beautiful visual appeal, but not so much that you are getting overexposed photographs.
As we increased in elevation the snow quickly began thickening around us, until we were engulfed by a beautiful covering. And one that would surely promise much more to come in the next few weeks.
Once at the top, land that seemed barren and dull was now iced with several inches of snow, creating a beautiful contrast with the valley below. I am defiantly looking forward for more snow to come, so stayed tuned!
