    Just beautiful.
    I always think the most interesting photos are those that have few details and are very simple. Not many people can shoot them anywhere near as well as you.

    (Reminds me of a sand drift photo I looked at last night in a new book I have on Creative Nature & Outdoor Photography).

    • I think you’re right, Victoria…the simplicity can be so beautiful…. Thank you.

      And it is curious how sand and snow can resemble one another, isn’t it? 😉

  12. Oh my goodness. Incredibly tender. It’s like your mountains and trees in miniature. This is one of my favourite posts ever.
    What amazing light.

  15. A lone tree here and there at the foot of the Lilliputian Mountains. Silence that you can only see with the third eye. Speechless here, Mike. The fragile, ephemeral beauty of these images is almost painful to see.

    • I share(d) your awe for them, George…keeping my distance to avoid risk of sullying the beautiful blanket of snow…and in true wonder at the fragile state of the scene…and yes, it was incredibly quiet up there in the canyon…it was just me in the tabernacle of the trees and the sparkling snow….
