[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A scene from the cross-country ski area in the mountains of the north shore of Vancouver. It was a very misty day and there was a light snow.
I like the contrast here of the brightly painted bamboo trail marker poles and the heavily snow covered trees. Keeping an eye on things are a pair of Whiskey Jacks (grey jays). I'll have a picture of them close-up soon. Here they are just part of the overall ambience.
I'm not satisfied with the whites here - they seem to be a more underwater greenish. I had set my white balance to cloudy. Guess I'll have to study that chapter a bit more.

Hello John!
Very nice capture.Colors,POV,details,lighting,
framing and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)

I really like this photo. Not a scene one sees everyday. It's a really effective composition of both shape and color. I think the greenish cast could be removed in pp. I tried it in a workshop.

Hello John,

Sorry, no time for a decent comment, but definitely worth a ;-)


Hi John,
Excellent shot here. It almost looks duo tone with the red painted in. The composition and framing of this in the portrait mode look great. Very well done!

Hi John,

Amazing POV. I like the underwater greenish color of the photo. It makes it more a serene photo. I also like the contract of the red trail marker poles
