Photo of the Day by John Schultz

Comments

What makes this shot work (for me) is the middle grey of the rocks juxtaposed with the black of the trees and the white of the snow. I’ve seen similar images where the shade of the trees and the rocks are closer. In those, there is simply not as much to look at, but this one has such a rich range of tones in the mountainside and then… oh yeah, there’s the moon.

Thanks to you both. Flying through a snowstorm! good times

I agree – really great shot!

Just a 400mm and a little crop. 600 would have been similar to this image

That must be one monstrously long lens!

The more I look at this photo, the more I like it.

Holy Cow!

thanks! I agree, I think they actually make the image work, give it a bit of a suprise and some interest.

Have you ever been to Stanley Lake? It’s a beautiful place with the Sawtooths behind it. Have fun.

I saw this did well in the Your Favorite Photo contest, Cathy. I need to plan a summer visit to Stanley Lake.
