The 2012 landscape calendar is now available. Go check it out!

This was a lake before the winter came. The difference between the "colored" and b&w version of this shot requires a magnifying glass to see :)

Location: Marshes along the Georgia Straight, Richmond, Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
Equipment: Nikon D90 + Tokina 11-16mm + Tiffen Polarizer.
Technique: Photomatix Pro 4.1 and Photoshop CS5 from 3 RAWs shot in 1.5 EV intervals.

Interesting point of view, the branches nearest to you give the land or what you pointed out to be the lake, depth. Shows that snow is quite deceiving both in images and reality. The treeline in the background add to that depth, removing what could have been a bland image and giving the illusion of a never-ending, untouched land of frost. This makes one wonder, whats behind the photographer. Is it a view equal to this one? Maybe a lonelier path back to civilization and out of nature's grasp. Such a combination of contrast from the dark trees and the bright white snow is so beautiful. So well done. I will admit, however, that snow-scapes are quite common and tend to look fairly similar. It is quite easily to dismiss a beautiful piece for "just another snow day". This however, was quite well done.
What do you think?

Lions, tigers, and bears! OH MY! For some reason it reminds me of OZ if it was covered in a giant blanket of snow. Beautiful :).
