Good to see your picture after a long time, Rick.
This is a brilliant shot and you are being modest about it.
The viewpoint is excellent and the landscape image has a very good depth of view. The snow clad tree tops look wonderful in the foreground.
I envy you for this exciting trip through the states I would love to see with my own eyes.
Thanks for a lovely glimpse of it in winters.

Western North American beautiful landscape photo you did
with the winternal scenery, fine POV, fine wide angle framing,
lovely trees and mountains of the background, TFS
Well...since you asked, I'll tell you what I would do with this scene. I realize you were impressed with the wide expanse of the scene and wanted to capture it all. Sometimes that doesn't make for the best composition because the image may lack a focal point. There are several strong points...probably too many. You have two main tree clumps in the front and those nice white peaks in the distance. I did a workshop limiting the focal points and moving the horizon out of the center.
I'm jealous of your adventure... maybe someday....... sigh....

This is a beautiful wintry/snow shot with lovely natural landscape, details & POV. Well taken & presented.
Anyone who rides snowmobiles for 22 hours in 2 days must be attached to the outdoors and its many elements.
Stay safe out there Rick & TFS.

A lot of snow! A real pleasure and delight to the eye and to the camra. Tha landscape is impressive, and I understand very well your tendency of capturing all. Maybe I would do the same like you, many times we are really impressed by the view in front of our eyes. And, actually, we want to share with evrybody those beauties. And we do not have inspiration maybe to analize the scene for a perfect compozition.
I like Evelynn ws and her idea to chanege the horizon line. I am tryingg also to stick a little bit to the rules, even after, on the computer with some pp.
All the best,

I like this shot because it tells/shows the story of the massive snow storm and high winds which stuffed the pine trees with snow. Great capture.

A gorgeous wintry landscape scene. I can only imagine the amount of snow and wind force it took to encase those pines like this. The beautiful mountains in the BG almost remind me of ocean waves.
Super sharp detail and vivid rich colors shown with excellent exposure!! A very peaceful looking spot, I can definitely see why you enjoyed this trip so much. Great work!!
