In late winter several years ago, I was hiking on snowshoes in St-Donat-de-Montcalm, Quebec, Canada. As usual, I was also on the hunt for winter photos and had my camera with me. I really enjoy my M43 gear for its lightness and portability. Along the track, I happened on this little isolated broken tree. I was caught by the composition: the clean snow combined with other important elements, the texture, lines, curves, patterns, and shadows. Looking at this image makes me think of a wild animal caught in the snow, its mouth fully open, trying to breathe!
I used a focal length of 92 mm (35 mm equivalent) to compose the image. I knew that the white snow would trick my camera light metering. So, I overexposed by 1.3 stops to have a perfect histogram (ETTR)
