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

  • One of your best photos.

    How Lovely!! I love the softness of all around the tree. the colors really grab you! Beautiful shot!

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