Frozen Sun

by josephrossbachphoto

I found this beautiful grove of trees on the summit of Backbone mountain the other day while snowshoeing in the back country. I hung around until after the sun had risen high enough to crest the ridge and composed this image with the sun star.

Right now there is about 36 to 48 inches of snow in the mountains around Canaan Valley and it is a winter wonderland! I have 3 more days of shooting and a workshop to run, so hopefully the conditions will hold out! 

Upcoming Photography Lectures/Presentations:

 Don’t miss out on our Swallow Falls One DayWinter Workshop on February 13!

In this one day winter workshop in Swallow Falls State Park, we will have a chance to photograph the many frozen waterfalls, ice formations and virgin hemlock forests of the park. I will be there to guide you to the best spots, help with any technical questions, critique images and get those creative juices flowwing. We may also have a chance to visit Crainsville Sub Artic Swamp and a special are known as the bears den. This workshop starts at sunrise and ends at sunset. We will break in the middle of the day for a big lunch and warm drinks.

Follow this link  to register for the workshop online. Space is limited and spots are begining to fill up fast!

    A very familiar style but with an amazing twist! I really love the snow covered tree trunks. Very unique Joseph! Thanks for sharing!

    I love its predominant two-tone effect of blue and white!
