Winter Light

Winter Light

Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters, Wells Maine. Just a short loop of trail. I will probably walk it again today, and I have thousands of times in the past 10 years. I rarely come away without at least one memorable image.

This a spring day with a rare late blowing snow. It had just stopped and the sun was breaking through. The unusual light, spring light, on the snow and the trees is really the subject of this image. 

Sony DSC H9 at about 55mm equiv. F4.0 @ 1/60th @ ISO 100. Programed Auto.

I cropped a bit on the left in Lightroom to bring the sun on the tree trunks more towards the lines of power in image (see A Really Strong Suggestion of Thirds).  Mild recovery, some Clarity and Vibrance. Landscape Sharpen preset. 

It is from the Winter Weather Gallery.

    Thanks for all your photos, particularly those from downeast. My family came from Wells, and though I haven’t been there in years, it is one of my favorite places in this world, that whole area. So your photos trigger some great memories for me. Keep them coming!!
