Taken while snowshoeing in the Cascade Mountains, WA. The level of detail I'm able to capture, even handheld continues to astound me. The second photo is a close up of the snow mounded against the tree shown in the first photo. I used the NIK Color Effex "Tonal Contrast" plug in filter to accentuate the texture of the snow in the wide shot.
Hand held, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, f/8 with 28-300 mm lens at 48mm for wide shot and 122mm for close up view.
