A week ago, it was really cold for Corvallis (several days down to 16º F). Beau and I took a hike up off of Lewisburg Saddle, where it was even colder. The White Balance of this is exactly right.

daniela scharnowski from Berlin, Germany

I really love the winter colours and composition here but to be honest it´s too detailed and textured for my eyes - no offence!

20 Dec 2009 11:13am

@daniela scharnowski: I can see how you could feel that way. My goal was simply to communicate the feeling of "cold" (which it was). It's certainly not something that I would print.

dj.tigersprout from New York City, United States

ooh -- this reminds me of southern Iceland... where the water simply drips from the landscape all year round -- freezing just like this in winter climes!! lovely!

21 Dec 2009 2:38pm

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks, dj.

JOEMULLIGAN from penland, nc, United States
