Break From The Weather

St. Anton, Austria – February 2008

The temperature is supposed to get into the 90s (F) by this weekend here in the San Francisco Bay Area. So I thought I'd send a bit of chill out for relief.

You're looking down the mountain upon the village of St. Anton, Austria. I don't ski, but I was invited to join a group of skiers for the week. It's no trouble to ride the tram up and down.

Over the last eight years I have processed this photo several different ways. If you look at my photos, you may see more than one version of this, but I think this is the best so far. The difficulty is in trying to bring out the textures in the snow without making it look dirty. With #LightroomCC and #NIK #ColorEfexPro4 I was able to make the right compromises that enhanced what was available in the original raw file.
