    Taken high above Green Mountain Reservoir near Kremmling, Colorado. 12/4/04. The dark "lightning bolts" on the frozen lake are from cracks that allowed water to seep through.....melting the snow.....then refreezing. They were interesting enough in and of themselves for me to post a second shot from ground level. I hope you enjoy the mood these two images create.

    #1 is #1.

    Fantastic use of light, bright snow not blown out.

    Shadows, mist, compostion all superb, IMO.



    Man, I gotta take more pics in B&W.

    The first shot is amazing. I like the way that it is set up, the lighting everything. I am just waiting to get snow here to try out my b&W on it. BTW, is that a lake where pic 2 was taken?

    Awesome. I'd crop some of the top out if it were my picture, but that's just a preference.

    Compared to #1, the 2nd pic is only a snapshot.
    #1 is exibition material. This shot has all the elements necessary for a New York Gallery. It has Composition, subject material, technical expertese, mood, and nothing else matters. My compliments to you, ccd333!
