The one downside to trying to get out shooting in Winter are the many days of grey skies. Naturally when the first day comes around with clearer shies, it’s out driving around with the camera in hand. With the recent weather patterns and the cold temps I knew there would still be snow covering the trees in Hyalite Canyon. One of my favorite and one of the best ways to capture the natural beauty of a cold winter day is the abstract patterns that arise from snow covered pine trees. Using the D4 and 70-200VRII it’s easy to find the patterns that pop out in the snow. The 70-200 VRII helps to isolate those areas that are interesting without capturing everything else, like the blue sky above or the ugly brook below. It’s about the patterns.
