This was from a hike in Portage Valley this past Saturday. It was a bit cold for this time of year, at least in this area – the temperature varied from 10 to 15 below Fahrenheit. These trees were nicely back lit by nice golden light as the sun just peaked over the mountains on the horizon to the South – right about at high noon! A good portion of the Portage Valley doesn’t even see sun this time of year.
This reminds me of a post I did a few years ago that might be of value: 8 winter photography tips.
