I really enjoy photographing red rock after a fresh snow fall. I used a longer lens to really bring these red cliffs up close and personal. I was hiking in about 2 feet of snow when the soft light started to filter through as the clouds danced around the highest points of the cliffs. Trying to convey mood in a photograph is often accomplished by getting out when the weather man says its going to be bad. Mother nature always makes it rewarding for those who stick it out.
