Beautiful!!!
 
''Tunnel View'' with fog and snow at Yosemite Valley, USA

Artist    :  William Toti
Works   :  A clearing winter storm (Toti edition), color
Links     :  http://bit.ly/1GxTODs 


Artist's statement :

"It was the last day of our Yosemite trip in April 2013. We were scheduled to fly out early the next morning and were planning to make the 4-hour drive to San Francisco that day. When we woke up and saw snow on the ground, we cancelled breakfast and raced up to tunnel view because we knew the snowy scene would be spectacular. And it was. The initial omen: only a coyote awaited us in the parking lot. I screamed as I approached the guardrail with my camera (and I'm not a screamer)-- I knew this would be the shot I had been waiting for. My initial intent was to compose and expose for black-and-white only (shooting in raw and exposing to the left), but when I saw the balanced color composition I decided to include this version in my portfolio as well. And I guess I made the right decision. While I still like my black-and-white version better, this one has received much more attention and positive feedback. The moral, relearned so many times: being lucky (on timing and weather) is as important as being good (in technique). And don't try to guess what the public reaction will be, I would have guessed wrong that my black-and-white version would have received more accolades than this one. And as it turned out, I didn't need to worry about exposing to the left. I had to adjust the exposure in very small increments, but the incredible dynamic range of the D800 allowed me to capture with a single exposure."

This was taken at the Icecream sand dunes last year during a full moon rising, we planned the shoot so we could capture the Milky Way and then wait out for the Moon to rise and light the landscape. - Scott McCook
