A late winter storm dropped ice and snow on the high peaks of Franconia Notch. This tight view of Mount Lincoln highlighted the ice and snow coating trees and summit. A BW conversion was the obvious choice as very little color was present and the...

Rites Of Spring


Rites Of Spring

Each spring, thousands of skiers and boarders flock to the base of Mount Washington and ski Tuckerman Ravine. The tradition goes back to the 1930's and is more popular than ever today. I thought and BW treatment preserved the classic and timeless...

 Loon Mountain Winter

The mountains near Loon Mountain clear after a fresh snowfall. Dappled sun and spotlit peaks lended the scene to a BW conversion.

Whiteout!


Whiteout!

My perfect winter day includes big snow storms and turbulent weather since the chance for dramatic images increase. Blue-bird winter days can be a bit boring for my style of photography. Wind-driven snow produced this slightly abstract image, as the...

Theatre Of Shadows

This shot was taken in the late afternoon, with a little bit lower light than the daily light, which is characteristic in the winter time just an hour before sunset.... Sun and cliff formation of Grand Canyon create this "Theatre of Shadows"

Clearing Storm - Scar Ridge


Clearing Storm - Scar Ridge

Immense winter storm clouds created the perfect drama and atmosphere as the winter weather pulled away in New Hampshire's White Mountains. I stitched 3 images together using a zoom lens to provide greater detail in the trees of the final image. A...

Crystal Fortress


Crystal  Fortress

The winter months allow for exploration of Iceland's ice caves, as the cold temperatures help stabilize the ice and increase safety. A hole in the ceiling of the cave allowed snow to fall in and created a unique FG compositional element.

Castle Mountain


Castle Mountain

Fresh snow and clearing skies made for perfect conditions for this view of the summit spires of Castle Mountain in the Canadian Rockies. I chose this upward view for the commanding presence it gives the peaks.

Perfect By Nature

Winter in Yellowstone can be magical on a cold winter day and often suites B&W images. The backlit steam in the Biscuit Basin area gave the impression of a forest fire in the winter.

Winter's Wonderland


Winter's Wonderland

A combination of freezing rain and snow produced magical conditions in NH's White Mountains. Even during heavy snows, the deciduous trees are often stripped of snow by wind, leaving snow only on the evergreens. This morning was unusual in that...

Upper Basin Frosting

High contrast lighting conditions in the Upper Bsin section of Yellowstone reveal the park in new ways. Backlit steam vents lend themselves to unique creations in the winter season. The solitude of winter is a very different experience from the busy...

Ridge Lines


Ridge Lines

I was attracted to this graphic compositon while heading to another photo location one morning. The shadow lines and textures immediately made me think this would be an interesting B&W. I waded through deep snow to frame the compositon you see.

Cloudland Falls


Cloudland Falls

Cloudland Falls is one of those waterfalls that can be a torrent during the spring, but nearly dry during the fall months. I was fortunate to time my visit after a wet snow, so runoff created some flow and snow was glued to every surface.

Simplicity


Simplicity

I found this stand of aspen isolated on a hillside outside of Telluride while snow shoeing. I returned when the sun angle accentuated the textures of the snow and the sky complimented the scene.

Theatre Of Shadows

Winter Canopy


Winter Canopy

On January 5th this year I thought I would go down to the river to get some winter shots, on the way sown the trail I noticed the canopy of the trees and the way the snow showed the detail of the bark. I never made it to the river!

Dead Horse Point Winter


Dead Horse Point Winter

I stopped at Dead Horse Point after shooting sunrise in Canyonlands on New Year's Eve. Fresh snow had fallen overnight creating beautiful layers of white and red. I found a spot with untouched powder and a small tree for the foreground and took to...
