Today's image is inspired by the snowstorm that is unfolding outside my office window right now. This image is "Subsiding Storm" and was taken during the winter of 2009 from a helicopter over the Southern Alps of New Zealand's South Island. We had rented the chopper to get views of the highest peaks of the Southern Alps at sunset and managed to catch this view before the light really warmed up. The clouds rolled off these peaks and revealed a perfectly pristine blanket of snow. The image looks to be black and white, but it is really in color.... there are just not colors that were present to suggest anything other than a Black --> Grey --> white spectrum.
ENJOY & STAY WARM!
