[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Heading back down the mountain after renting Anders some snowshoes to try out at the Hazens Notch Ski Touring Center (http://www.hazensnotch.org/) It was a beautiful ride in the snow.
We are at this point heading down route 58 towards Montgomery Center, a town amidst the Appalachian Mountains and also our home.

I converted my photo to black and white with my Adobe PHotoshop CS3
sharpened the image and resize, it really didn't need to be converted as this time of year we really ARE in black and white til around April...:o)

Hi Donna,
This is a great winter shot, lovely depth ... to the image and the snowfall!, nice white balance and good framing. TFS

Hi Donna,
A wonderful winter impression in black & white. Excellent well balanced composition, perfect contrast and brightness without OE. Great picture well presented.

Hello Donna

This is a timeless capture.
A wonderful rural capture in Winter.
Very good POV and perspective.



Hello Donna!
Excellent winter scene!
Nice perspective!
Best regards!

Hi Donna,
I like the lead in down the road and the natural frame from the trees, a nice scene though I bet you get bored of the snow LOL.
Regards Andy

Bonjour Donna,

Voilà une superbe image de neige.
Une capture en noir et blanc fantastique.
Excellente composition, merci.
Agréable semaine à vous.


Marvelous processing on these shots Donna! Even a tinge of blue would make this look incredible! Super sharp, outstanding work!

Hi Donna,
Another great winter shot. Looks like a postcard.

hello Donna,
This truly is a winter scene.
Well taken and composed.
I like your POV.

All I can say is "Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr"!! Sure looks cold. I think the black and white makes it look even colder! I especially like how you have used the tree branches towards the top to frame the scene. Nice variation of trees throughout. Keep warm! Lisa

Hi Donna,
An excellent wither shot beautifully framed by the snow covered branches
in the FG. I like the wider view of the road in FG. Offers a lovely DOF
as you venture inwards towards the house. Distant mountains fills up the
area behind the house very nicely. Well done.
Best regards.

Hello Donna,

I like it
