While visiting with my wifes family over the Christmas holidays, I managed to sneak out for a few minutes just as the sun was setting one afternoon. I found these aspen trees inundated by fresh snow. All that was really necessary was to move my point of view around a bit to get the right balance. As it was getting dark out the light was very flat so just a hint of texture shows in the snow.
