Rural landscapes: the snows of May

HWY. 66 AFTER THE SNOW, KANANASKIS COUNTRY, ALBERTA

Living at 1,000 metres above sea level means dealing with the occasional May snow dump. This was a glorious morning to make photographs, because the rivers and ponds were ice-free and made for wonderful reflections with snow-laden trees.
To heighten the contrast, I kept the centre lines in colour, but converted the rest of the scene to black & white. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter, graduated density (darkening) filter on the sky.

  1. A very cool composition. And I love how you have kept the yellow and converted the rest to B&W. A great shot!
