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.
