Hi Monika!
Fantastic image! Great exposure and composition. And that little human figure really makes the difference!

Obviously, you had a great white Christmas!

Cheers,

RP

Thank you very much foe all your wonderful comments, everyone! Im really delightful youve enjoyed this image!
The photo was taken in Alpental, WA. I was there a couple of times during the winter or summer, but the last time was the best. The best weather, the best freshly fallen snow and the lowest temperature 20 degrees. My fingers freeze every 5 photos taken, but it was cool since I cant take real winter photos full of snow so often. In Redmond where I live snow is very rare, so no white Christmas, Robert, just like in Poland ;-).
Thanks one more time and Happy New Year to everyone!
Monika

Wow Monica, this almost looks like a video game of some sort, like if he doesn't play right he will fall off the cliffs.....ok, it is late and past my bed time. Well done and congrats!

Thank you very much for your nice comments, everyone! I just cant believe that this photo reached second place! Im thrilled and very happy, because landscape photos always are the biggest challenge for me.
Once again thank you for your time and your kindness!

Hi Monika - this is one terrifi photograph! At first I didn't see the person, I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of the mounds of snow and trees - and then "wow" - there they were - what a great surprise! Wonderful image, congratulations!

Brenda thank you very much for you kind comment! I have to tell you that I was patiently waiting for this little guy, because only his appearance could show us the real size of the trees and surrounding space. I just wish to have those trees looking a little bit taller, but that was all I could squeeze from my camera standing from the place where I was. Once again thank you for your time!

Bernard Im really grateful for your nice comment! Thank you!

Monika

Woah, weird. I live in Redmond, too. I went up to Alpental this year... that day it definitely didn't look like that! I'm always afraid to take my camera to the mountain because I don't want to drop it. Do you have something that protects the camera?

Cathy, Kathleen, Gary and Lauren a generous thank you for your nice comments!

Lauren I took this photo on December 29th and I was lucky enough to find this place covered by the freshly fallen snow. While I walk there I always carry my camera hanging on a strap from my neck or in my bag, never in my hands. There is always so much to hike up or slide down, so it could be dangerous carrying it just in hands. I must protect mostly myself at that time ;-).
