On a clear day, the sky on top of Blue Knob mountain in Claysburg, Pennsylvania (USA) is the most amazing blue. I wonder if that isn’t how the mountain got its name. This image was taken January 22, 2011, just a few days after I finally screwed my courage back up and returned to the ski slopes myself. Center, bottom third you can see the chair lifts and a group of happy skiers.

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens. Shutter speed 1/2500, aperture f/8.0, exposure -0.67, iso 250. The only post work was a bit of noise reduction.

    Wow, Lois! What a beautiful shot! The blue looks gorgeous and those long shadows are perfect. Plus, you’ve made snow look like, well, snow! It’s just the right shade or white balance, and I love the crystals on those trees! Did they melt quickly?

  • Jan, thanks so much, hon!!!! Expert on snow as you are!!!!! God bless the D300 and auto white balance!!!! And no, the snow doesn’t melt quickly up here unless there’s a wind in which case I stay inside and bake cookies, lol. I drove down the mountain a little ways and not far down the snow was off the trees, so I turned around, came back up on top and snapped some more shots!!!!! I’ve seen a glorious couple of weeks up here!!! Finally took the shots out of the camera this morning!!
