Russian Jack Springs Park in Anchorage, Alaska, has an abundance of trees. During the winter frost covers the trees with white wonder. You have to photograph the frosted trees when you first see them as the frost will melt in a couple of hours. I lost several photographing opportunities thinking I would return a little while later. Theses images were taken from January to March 2011. The images of the residential subdivision and mountains were taken from a small hill within the park.

I use a surveyor tripod to capture sharp images with long exposures. When photographing snow I add one f-stop or more to my exposures. If snow is under exposed it will look grey in images. Increasing exposures will produce white snow. I used several lens with my Nikon D7000 to obtain these photos.
