There's always that one bright snowflake

I went for a quick hike up to Jane Bald after one of the recent snows we had and caught some great light, clouds and patterns in the snow on the boulders that are in the mountain. It was super windy so I had to kick up my ISO so I could have a pretty fast shutter speed. But regardless of the wind and cold temps, it was beautiful. 

I named this journal entry "There's always that one bright snowflake" because in each of my images there's one snowflake that is reflecting a lot of light from the sun which makes a super bright dot on the image. I'm not sure they can be seen on here (if you look closely enough you can probably find them) but on my large computer monitor it looks pretty cool!

I also focused on what was in my foreground and worked to incorporate interesting elements into my composition so the viewer can imaginatively walk right through the scene. That wasn't a hard thing to do because there were these awesome patterns in the rocks everywhere. 

Below are some of my favorite images from the hike. 

Thanks for checking out what very well may be the last group of winter photos for this season. .
