Tricoleur en glace

A rooftop in the ski resort of Montgenèvre in France.


Taken with an Olympus OM-2SP and Zuiko 100mm f/2.8 lens. Aperture was probably f/5.6 - certainly no smaller, as I was shooting handheld on Kodachrome 25! I metered off the wood and overexposed by one stop to try to keep detail in the dark shadows and on the bright snow. The original slide shows I succeeded in this a bit better than the scan does. The richness of the brown wood is also out of reach of computer monitors.
