The Autumn Tree After the Snow Storm

On one of the mornings when we woke up in Patagonia, I came out of the tent to find everything covered in a soft blanket of snow. It was the middle of the autumn there, so the rich deep colors on the trees stood out in sharp contrast to white snow.

I grabbed this shot as quickly as I could before the snow started to cover everything up too much, which can tend make for a somewhat washed-out shot. I believe this photo was at f/2.8 with the 24-70 lens. That aperture helped the most interesting tree in the foreground to stay sharp while everything else stayed foggy and snowy (which it kinda was anyway).

    This photo is somehow reminiscent of a tilt-shift photo. Absolutely amazing Trey. It is unbelievable how much one could sit and admire your work.

    I like the atmosphere of the photo , its dreamy-like, as if your still waking up from a dream and your vision is not really in focus but still blurred

    Thanks very much! I think I was lucky in that the bright fog behind the tree helped to outline it a bit.
