Winters Calm
Winters Calm
Taken along my way to the Blue Ridge Parkway in a community called Buffalo Ridge. It was very overcast and getting dark so I had to work fast. I have several different versions of this so you all bare with me. Used Velvia here ISO 50 at 40 tripod cable release, and settings of f/22 and 3 seconds.

You already know I LOVE this image and the other versions I've seen as well. It is so perfectly done. Love the dark road behind the image that leads the viewer through the image and out to what lies beyond. I don't think we'll have a hard time baring with you at all as you share the magnificent versions of this. You work well under pressure apparently!! FANTASTIC!!

Magnificent, Darren. Excellent composition. Great title too, I love how you can hear everything so crisp and clear after a snow, but it also seems so muted.

Darren, I really like the geometric shapes and the opposite contrasting colors in this image - the dark color of the path in the snow and the white reflection of the gazebo roof in the water. Nice place and a very cool image of it. Best of luck in the contest with this image, Darren!

Velvia is a gem of a film for landscape photography...though some find it a bit too contrasty!!! You've managed it very well by pulling it tp ASA40. Did you pull processed it?

Darren,
I love the balance you created in this phot by having the gazebo to the left and the black road in contrast to the right. This image draws you in, in an almost haunting way. The fact that the day was overcast is probably what makes this image such a winner. Thank you for sharing this with us!

I can "feel" the impact of this photo. The road in the image will either lead you to the lake or away from the lake. Absolutely breath-taking.
