This was one of the rare occasions where I dug out my summer lens, the venerable 16-80mm zoom. It renders very sharp images, but the slow f-stops from 3.5 to 4.5 make it quite unsuitable during our current short and dark winter days, especially when the sky is overcast. But here I could stop down to f8, resulting in sharp grasses and florescences but still blurred background.

  1. I like how you captured this majestic view through the grasses. The way they’ve collected snow is a lovely touch.

  2. The eye naturally falls to the valley between the mountains in the background. Very nice framing of this feature between the two tallest grass stalks. Well executed composition and a beautiful image.
