Fall and Snow on the Gardner

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.
