Bow Valley – late autumn, early snow
Winter snuck an early snowstorm into Banff National Park’s Bow Valley last weekend. By mid-morning, most of the snow had melted away in the valley bottom but the upper slopes were still dominated by the white mixed with the green of the forest. It was a beautiful landscape to enjoy – we’ll see how long it takes before the snow takes hold for a longer stay.
wow! great photos – can you provide details on how you captured this great image? thanks!

Hi – thanks for your email and for your question.
For this image, I used a graduated neutral density filter while I was photographing to darken the sky and the mountain peak. That part of the image was still very bright so I used a virtual ND grad in post production to knock down the brightness another stop. That brought the different areas into a dynamic range which could be displayed effectively.

Stunning shot…the expanse of nature in beautiful on its own, but the colors, clouds and crisp snow peaks ~ very cool.
