Early Morning Dreams

Here in Washington we have had more snow than is possible to dream of. I have been out for the last week taking hundreds of these winter images. I get early every morning at sunrise to look for fields or forests where the sun can really highlight the snow. This image was really hard to expose for as was a combination of three RAW exposures again combined for their strengths in PS. I also added a Diffuse Glow layer in the background to give it a painterly look.

Taken again with my new Canon 5D MK 2


Thanks for taking the time to look !
