Laced In Frost by davidrichterphoto Laced In Frost by davidrichterphoto
Steam is creeping along the bends in the river, thick hoarfrost covers the branches and the snow turns to a pinkish purple glow from the color in the sky, deep in Germany's Ore Mountains.

Thank you very much and to answer your question. Yes, it was really that way. No color was added to the scene. I used a Singh-Ray neutral density grad filter to balance the exposure, but no color filter or anything in post. Of course, there is some color work in Photoshop involved with every RAW file but never anything added to it that wasn't there in the first place.

I found, the snow usually picks up the most color if it is extremely cold. My theory is that the larger crystals, the better they reflect the light, resulting in a glowing snow. When I took the image, it was zero degrees Fahrenheit outside when I parked the car a mile or so away, eventually even cooler down at the creek.

It's a beautiful shot, with a very subtle glow. The filtering you used was perfect. I know there is color there already, but there are several ways to bring it out -- raising the blacks level, boosting saturation and or vibrance, etc. So I'm still wondering if you used some of those to boost the color a bit in the raw edit.
