Foto Friday – White Trees

Foto Friday - White Trees

Rob always makes fun of me for my lame, uncreative titles. I always make fun of him for his “thesaurus” titles.  We’re at an impasse…haha.

This picture was taken last month when we went up to Farmington Canyon with friends.  We snow shoed away from the cabin and came to an open, snow-covered field. We all stopped, took out our cameras, and looked around for different perspectives.

When I was taking this shot, I already knew what I wanted to do with it, stylistically.  The white trees already stood out against the darker green background, but I wanted to pronounce that a little bit more and tried to make the trees emanate or “glow” a little.  It took some experimenting and a hard decision between keeping it in color or changing it to b&w, but this is what I ended up with. It’s not perfectly in line with what I had envisioned in my head, but pretty close. That’s such a hard thing sometimes, getting your vision captured. I’ll keep working on that…
