    Shadow on Snow

    Good snowfall last night so I went out for a drive this morning as the sun rose and got this image, I call it "Shadow on Snow". I am starting to look for smaller images within the larger picture. That said I needed 15 shots to get the whole thing in, there was a lot of overlap between images. The final image at full size is 12" x 50" so much for small images.

    Cheers:

    A lovely sight this! I like the elegant gesture of the ribbon of darkness as it trails away from the post. Your labor of love has paid off.

    Very cool.

    I did exactly the same thing with our 25-30cm of snow.

    Very beautiful!
    I like the idea of isolating the shadow and including only a small portion of the "shadow's owner". It gives me a lot of inspiration to try similar shots with many other subjects.
    Unfortunately, where I'm temporarely living now it never snows... I'll have to wait for the next winter

    Cheers

    I bet this will look great properly framed. I love how sharply the edges of the pole shadow are demarcated. It truly looks ribbon-like, and contrasts so well with the shape and contour of the snow shadow. this really works for me.

    I see I am not alone in perhaps captioning the image, "Ribbon in the Snow." The exposure is absolutely gorgeous, revealing detail in the snow where you want it to be displayed and not revealing it in other areas, portraying an undulating surface that is very attractive.

    I do wish the little mound of snow in the bottom right area didn't intersect with the ribbon. I feel so strongly about that that I would strongly consider digitally moving the ribbon just enough to avoid that collision.
