ok I no longer like you ! I am adding you to the list of ppl I dislike (ppl who have ridden there Fcats in snow) LOL looks like you had a great time, I haven't been to silver city in a few years. Did you go all the way up to the top of the "mountain" ? that first step is a big one.
Later...............................Flash and Flare

ok so I should have let the rest of the pics open up before asking about the mountain, oh well. You said a 300 ft walk ? the last time I was up there it had a one way up and one way down sled path for ppl to drive up and down or is that a big NO NO now ?

Great pics BFC- I have 750 miles on mine and some great pics but they are still in the camera. Rode my sled in 3' of powder this weekend and I just continue to like it more and more-it does everything well.

I use Photoshop but many programs have a "levels" tool. That's the tool to use, not just brightness or contrast. Also, an even better idea is to look at your camera, and find the "exposure compensation" control. Some cameras actually have a 'snow scene' program, but you can just dial in a +1 stop exposure compensation instead. That will brighten your photos and give them better shadow detail. This is especially important on cloudy day snow scenes.
