Bad Weather, No Problem

Road To Rogers Pass

A little fog and rain and snow never hurt anyone, and it can improve your photography.

Bad weather can help to create mood in your pictures. Above, the rain and fog are between me and Mount MacDonald but the clouds are thinner near the peak. This creates a brighter area nearer the summit with enhanced contrast in the crevasses.

Purcells Storm

A curtain of snow is falling between me and the Selkirk Range in the Columbia River Valley. The evening sun is lighting the under sides of the clouds and framing the peaks across the river. The precipitation is having a softening effect on the image. Does bad weather keep you inside or are you out braving the storms?

In the best light…
