December 27th, 2012  
awesome! fave
December 27th, 2012  
I am enjoying the shots you have taken of each other
December 27th, 2012  
Interesting. Looks like dirty snow when viewed large. Just a trick of light perhaps?
December 27th, 2012  
@peterdegraaff Thanks Peter! I think we realize that the only way we usually wind up on film is with the rare selfie, so when we are out together we try to throw up a couple candids.
December 27th, 2012  
Fantastic capture and love the black and white on this shot! We need that snow!
December 27th, 2012  
@webfoot When I processed it in black and white, I bumped up the shadows pretty hard. The snow was pretty bumpy from some fresh heavy powder so it was casting quite a lot of shadows that really get picked up in B&W. In color, those shadow pieces would probably be bluish gray/white and would just look like snow.

Fabulous processing here
December 27th, 2012  
wow!
December 27th, 2012

Awesome scene - and snow shoes, yay! :D I would've needed a pair of those the other day when I went out to shoot some snowy landscapes... :D And I love it that you guys go out for photo treks together, that's got to be a lot of fun for you both!

So cool! What is that editing you use?
December 27th, 2012  
Nice, my favourite of these so far.
December 27th, 2012  
@sassik Thanks Sassik! I processed in LR4 first, sliding the contrast a bit, then moved it into Silver Efex for the majority of the work, then a couple more adjustments in LR4 before calling it quits :)
December 27th, 2012  
Incredible!
December 28th, 2012  
climbing mountains in the snow and ice, there's a hobby for people with balls like oranges. I once started to slide towards a precipice on top of one of the UKs biggest and I have a very distinct memory of the edge coming closer.....
December 28th, 2012  
I'm sure this was beautiful sooc but the editing is very cool.
December 28th, 2012
