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.

  1. Wow this is such a wonderful photo! I actually cannot stop staring at it. It’s so simple yet so elegant in an abstract sort of way! Might I say that it is a little dramatic as well? Anyway, quite beautiful to say the least really. Good Job!

  2. Very nice. Simple and graphic. I like the way snow transforms nature into abstract elements. Well done technically also, the tones are perfect.
