Snow on the Smoke Bluffs

Snow covered trees and rock faces

Smoke Bluffs in Squamish, BC, Canada with snow.

I always love to see the surrounding hills & mountains with fresh fallen snow.  The snow defines the shapes of the rock in a way that doesn’t show otherwise.  Places that seem steep turn out not to be, and places that look flat turn out to be vertical (or, in some cases, indented).

This particular view is not far from my home.  Usually it is cluttered with power lines and I often think how beautiful it would be without them.  This day I decided to remove them from the photograph and I like the effect enough that I intend to do so again in the future.  It took a fair amount of time in Photoshop but the end result is worth the effort.
