Fire and Ice

Fire and Ice.
I couldn’t help but look at the sky last night over “The 3 Chairs” and think about the real fires to the west in California. I have many friends and family who live out there and hope they stay safe. They are always in our thoughts and prayers.
As the snow storm pushed off to the east, I knew the sunset would be spectacular here in Bear Woods. As the sun dropped below the cloud line the snow glowed with warm light. Evelyn saw it and ran to the door to make sure I got the shot. Even we professional educators need teachers and guidance…
For the image itself, I quickly recognized that this was a perfect time to use the Sirui Reverse Graduated Neutral Density Filter since the brightest part of the image was along the horizon, and then above it in the sky. I wanted to capture detail in the foreground so this filter was perfect to simply line up the darkest part where the sun was located in the frame. I really am loving this filter!
