Trees in the Snow (Crystal Vision) - Vosges Mountains, France – PHILIPPE SAINTE-LAUDY
Today is one of those fairytale images. You know the ones where you expect to see little elves running around. If they have a dark vibe then we tend to think of them as “Lord of the Rings” images. This one has a very clean and clear feeling. That sky color is so nice it could be a Crayola crayon color. What do you guys think? Please read Philippe’ s story below and then visit his spectacular site at http://www.naturephotographie.com/.
A photo taken in France in the Vosges mountains. We are at 1000 meters altitude and it freezes! A polarizing filter enhances the colors and the angle of shooting highlights the frozen trees. I overexposed by one stop to get a good snow white. I also chose a small aperture for good depth of field.
