The Reader's Lens | Northwest photos, 2011

Photographer: Todd Edison, Bellingham
Photo taken: Nov. 11, Chuckanut Bay, Bellingham
Photographer's description: "Frosty morning on my way to work, thought I would stop and take a pic of the water. I liked the texture of the frosty morning, wispy clouds, and crisp sky. Camera: Canon EOS 400D."
Expert says: "Good exposure captures highlights, midtones and shadows. This helps bring out the frost covering the tall grass. The overturned boat and shed anchor the image for a point of entry. The directional sunlight gives the image texture and creates layers." -- Kevin Fujii, Seattle Times picture editor
