Photographer: Dene’ Miles Photo taken: Nov. 24, 2018 at Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park Photographer’s description: “I spent the day snowshoeing with friends at Hurricane Ridge. It was a beautiful winter wonderland after a fresh snow the night before. Taken with a Nikon D7000.” Critique: “Scale is added to this wintry scene by putting a person front and center in this image. The trees nicely frame the trail, plus the position of the snowshoer looking like they are going forward creates a sense of movement that follows the vanishing point and draws you through the frame.” Below is a gallery of previous Reader’s Lens picks.
