Winter Wonderland

Christmas morning on the Kenai Peninsula, Chugach National Forest, Alaska.

Kenai Peninsula, Chugach National Forest, Alaska.

Here is another photo from Christmas morning.  This was about 10 minutes earlier then the one I  posted here on Monday.  The trees you see near the top of the little hill are the same ones in the foreground in Monday’s winter photo.

    I do love winter scenes when they combine this mix of cool colors – those cold pinks and blues. Lovely. And cold.

    Another great capture Ron, also congratulations on your 6 page layout in the new Outdoor
    Photograher Mag. That must of helped with the income this year.

    Ron, I like this one even more than the previous shot you posted with the trees closer in the foreground. A very painterly-pastel scene.. awesome!

    Thanks everyone!

    @ Dennis – I’m looking forward to seeing it – since the article was about me, it didn’t pay anything, but great publicity!

    I think I like this composition better Ron if I had to choose. Although I liked the earlier shot, I feel this one is a bit more balanced. Each has its own merits.

    Thanks Mark – that is interesting that you and Ethan prefer this composition – thanks for the feedback you guys!

    Love it, but not as much as the last one — to give you an idea about the balance in your audience.

    Another beautiful shot. Maybe a bit too much foreground on the left, but I like the sky better in this one.

    @ Joni – Thanks! I like the light better in this one, but the composition better in the previous one. Happy New Year!

    @ Scott – Thanks! I agree.
