Fall colors were late in Yellowstone last year and we had several early snows, which made it possible to get some good fall colors in a snowy landscape, like this view along the Gardner River a couple of days after a 6 inch snow. (5D3, 24-105 @ 35 mm, 1/50 s, f/16, iso 200, tripod and polarizer)
That tree is barely hanging in there, isn’t it?
I always like a mix of fall color and snow. In this image they combine well. The mid-day lighting in this gives a feeling of warm, but I’ll bet that’s deceptive. Was it cold?
Lovely view, Mark. There is always something special when you can capture snowfall with a colorful mix of autumn color. It looks cold. My only suggestion would be to clone out those two clouds as they do catch my eye a little, but that is just a personal preference.
A very pretty, wintry scene, Mark! First snowfalls on Fall colors is one of my favorite things. The white snow really brings out the colors.
