Feb 02, 2014, Tatoosh, Powder Bowl non-craze
« on: 02/03/14, 02:55 PM »

Tatoosh was deserted on Sunday leaving a plenty of un-tracked powder just for us three.  There appeared to be many skiers previous days harvesting the goods before the big game.  We started out the day under blue sky, but ended up w/ low cloud on the south slopes.  The new snow was bonded well to the crust about 1' deep due to transitional rain.  Took one lap down South, the snow was deep and light near the rigde , but got progressively heavier.  The visibility remain good on North slopes, eventually the cloud departed again.  The snow stayed light, we even got a few face shots (easier when telemarking!).  A photo-emergency for the late afternoon sun paused us long enough to reach the gate 15min after 5pm; fortunately a ranger just waved us goodbye.  Good day to be out for those non-football types Wink  A few more pics here

All those pictures are very good but that last one is simply amazing!
Are you using a tinted lens?

I do not doubt her skill, it was meant as a technical question as there is an enormous amount of light/glare has been choked down to a manageable level without losing detail in the darker areas, which can be hard to accomplish. The other way I can think of is a very tight aperture.

Any chance at a wallpaper size? Smiley

I wasn't giving you a hard time, FYI - just amazed at the shots she continues to put up.  For sure a hard shot to accomplish - way beyond my level of camera kung-fu.

That was the photo-emergency I mentioned earlier.  The fading light on flowing cloud was just amazing and kept getting better. It was hard to leave, and we practically had to drag Radka down the last slope so we could reach the gate before they closed it.

You are all very kind, thank you very much!

If you are curious about technical information regarding the last shot, here is the data: ISO 320, f/14, 1/500 s, 105 mm, -1 EV. I measured exposure on the brightest part of the picture, locked the exposure, recomposed and took the picture. That way I was able to avoid overexposure. I process pictures in LighRoom and NIK software, nothing too dramatic, though. The first picture was of course altered in post-processing to make it look silver-ish. I tinkered with white balance and saturation to make it look more interesting. I do not have any tinted lenses and I didn't use any filters. I only used UV filter for the Rainier shot.
