Photographer's Note

This is a small farm between Mitenwald and Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany near the Austrian border. We'd driven past this place on several previous trips and finally had perfect lighting that made us stop for this shot. It was shot in October, so the heavy snow in the mountains had already started its way down to the lowlands, wihich was interesting for someone from such a flat state as Michigan.

It's actually two shots combined. Because the sky and the snowy part of the mountains were about 2 stops brighter than the things on the ground, one exposure wouldn't work. I bracketed the shot and then combined the layers in Photoshop. I'd read about this technique and was very happy with how well it turned out.
