[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is our route along the upper part of the ridge, where we generally skirt around to the right of Needle Peak itself and optionally continue along a spur ridge to the right of this photo towards a small lake and other ridges for further exploration.
This photo was taken close to where we camped a couple weeks ago.
Polarizing filter used at minimum strength here.

Hi Tim,
Great that you take us on your adventures, your capture here is nice with the low sun your exposure is great.

Hi Tim,
Beautiful snowy landscape!
I like so much the composition made here, and the shadows/light effect.
It must be great to camp right over that wonderful places.
Congratulations, thanks for share and my best reagards,

I do like the low angle of the sun here and the light along the ridge. I think just a little more detail in the tree could be brougt out with the Shadows slider. Nice control of the polarizer. Thanks for yet another adventure.

Hi Tim,
The low sun created some wonderful warm color tones and also highlighted that part of the photo that leads me toward the top of the mountain. The only pity is that this part seems a little soft in focus compared to the shaded part. The details in the shaded part are really wonderful. I also like the base of the tree in the left FG. It looks like the snow has melted around it.
