What camera, lens and settings did you use to capture this stunning shot?
I used the Canon EOS 5D Mark III with the 1635mm f2.8. During the sunrise, the blizzard subsided a little, and the sun began to peer out, which allowed the frame to be shot at 1/250sec, f8, ISO 100 at 16mm.
How did you decide on the composition?
All the days I spent in the national park were raging blizzard – mostly a strong west wind was blowing, so all the trees were swept in one direction. I saw that the trees were very similar to a group of people in antique clothes and arranged the composition so that the falling shadows emphasised this.
What do you like most about the image?
I like the colour of the sky. The process of light scattering is influenced by small particles suspended in the air, the dimensions of which are comparable with the wavelength, which can give fantastic colours to the sky. Here their role was played by snow blown by the wind from the rocky part of the ridge; a delightful sight!
Did you do much post-processing?
I had to remove the traces of debris on the matrix, since when working under such harsh conditions it’s difficult to avoid getting dust on the camera sensor.
