Since I was in Africa throughout October I never got a chance to photograph Fall. Well I certainly will have plenty of time to photograph Winter as we already have a bunch of good storms going through. Driving down to Mammoth Lakes for Thanksgiving gave me plenty of time as it had just snowed through Madison Canyon.
Fresh snow is one of the best times to be photographing Winter. Everything is crisper, the trees are all covered, and usually the addition of warm temperatures after a cold frost can bring out some truly dramatic skies.
Shooting with the D4 and 24-70 AF-S f/2.8 a couple of quick shots from a fishing pullout along the Madison tells the story of the Winter storm.
