WIRR 2020, January Week 2

Scroll down to content

This week found us cross-country skiing at Snow Mountain Ranch, a ski area near Winter Park. During our lunch break I came across a stand of aspen trees, white against a dark blue sky. Below them, dark shadows from another stand of trees spread across white snow. I immediately knew this would be my favorite image of the week.

Digital Darkroom. This image didn’t take a lot of processing. I knew in advance this was going to be black and white. I converted it using Lightroom’s B&W 05 profile, which did a good job emphasizing the white trees and black shadows. I straightened the horizon, and finished by increasing the contrast (+13)

WIRR stands for Weekly Image Rich Ruh. This regular feature on Das Has von Ruh will show and describe my favorite photo created during this weekly period. My weeks start on Mondays, as does the WIRR. I’m hoping to include commentary on the story, the setting, the specs, or the sentiments, depending on the circumstances.
