January Winter Tour Results – Sonia Wadsworth
Below are Sonia’s images from the January Photo Canadian Rockies Winter Photo tour. We had a bit of a spell of bad weather and Sonia writes:
The variety of weather conditions experienced over the course of the 31/2 days of the January tour did not help me in my quest to capture any outstanding images. Trudging through snow drifts, not knowing what dangers lay unseen beneath, trying to keep batteries warm, cameras working and lenses free of blowing snow in the gathering gloom, my tripod legs seemed to possess a will of their own. The result… a great deal of post processing in Photoshop 😉
