I thought I’d take you back to my winter outing and this time down behind the hog back to Roxborough Park. I was looking for dramatic spires in the snow and since it was a little cloudy and over cast I knew I could get a little closer to the fountain formations in Roxborough Park. Luckily it was late enough in the morning that the park was open and there were quite a few cross county skiers and snowshoers already on the trails at Roxborough.
I didn’t really go prepared to do any snow showing so I just ventured out in my Sorels on to the trail and started hiking in the snow. There was a foot of snow in some place so it was a good workout that morning heading up hill in just my boots and a backpack full with my camera equipment and tripod. I guess I had a little too much holiday food anyway so I needed a good workout.
I was treated to the view I had envisioned and while it was a little foggy/cloudy in the distance I was able to bring it in with some added contrast post processing. The bland sky didn’t add much to the scene so I process this as a monochrome to highlight the formations and the contrast with the snow. This is Winter in Roxborough Park.
