Trees in the Snow

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 7 January 2014 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I've been skiing in the French Alps on holiday with my family over the Christmas period - this is a photo of a group of trees in the snow at Valmorel. The misty light is caused by the heavy snow that was falling at the time I took this shot.

NIKON D800 1/160 second F/5.6 ISO 140 260 mm (35mm equiv.)
