Changing Seasons #2

Aspen Grove after First Snow
Frenchtown, Montana

Two weeks after yesterday's photo I awoke to the first measurable snow on the valley floor. I returned to the same aspen grove to find most of the leaves now gone from the branches and the path accentuated by its snowy border.

Once again I chose an aperture of f/16 to get everything sharp and increased the exposure compensation by one stop, this time to compensate for the snow and white tree trunks. Smaller apertures like f/16 often result in slow shutter speeds, so I shot with the camera firmly resting on a tripod.
