  1. I see the sky tracks . . . definitively not cross-country.

  2. What a shot. They look like they’re all racing to the bottom! 🙂

    • I thought the same thing, Gunta…. I’ve had this sitting in my drafts folder since February, but couldn’t think of a good title for it…and next thing I knew, it was Spring and green and……anyway…. 😉

  4. When i imagine myself standing beside one of those evergreens I get a sense of how really big this is.

    • Yes, Allen…it is rather large out there. If I’m not mistaken, this is the northeast side of Grandeur Peak…a very local prominence that rises over 3,500 ft from the benches around the valley, with an overall elevation of just under 8,300 ft. It would be difficult to get lost out there…but very easy to lose oneself in the middle of it all…..

    Very striking composition that isolates certain elements beautifully.

    • Thank you, David…..the shadows seemed to be sledding down the mountainside….if that would be possible for shadows to do…. 😉

    this is so much better than the run-of-the-mill mountain/pine/snow scene…I love it

    • Well, I’ll try to stay away from those then….thank you, lady…I’m glad you love it. 🙂

      • Liana

        that wasn’t a commentary on your other scenes (which also transcend) just a compliment… this is a way cool shot 🙂

        December 20, 2013 at 9:25 am

        • I didn’t take it that way, my friend…thank you, again, for your very kind words. 🙂

  10. That is surreal, almost. There is the feeling that the whole slope sliding through the trees. Remarkable light and shadow, Scott. I finally spotted the off-piste ski tracks weaving through the trees.

    • The tracks are rather tucked-away in there, aren’t they?

      December 23, 2013 at 8:19 am

  11. Love it, Scott. Hills and trees just go together, don’t they?

    December 21, 2013 at 11:09 pm

  12. Thanks, Dave….and yes, a perfect match.
