I kept looking out my kitchen window and couldn’t get the drifting snow out of my mind. The sun was setting and the wind was blowing the light new snow from last night around the large evergreens into the yard. It was a beautiful sight, like a river flowing smooth as silk. I had to get out there and get close. I put on some big overalls and plumped down into the snow, right on the edge of the blowing snow. The light was a beautiful gold and it was perfectly quiet except for the wind picking up and slowing down only to pick up again. Nature is so amazingly powerful. Even if I was sitting in a snowdrift by our yard taking shots of…just that, the snowdrift and our yard. As I looked through the viewfinder, all I could see was this vast landscape of snow. The camera I picked is the one that has been converted to infra-red, so I had to change them all into black and white.

This must be a large mountain formation!

So much power! The “shark-fin” was only about 3 inches tall.

This one takes me to monument valley.

Here’s my ocean with tall mountains on the other side.

Amazing how a little sunshine and snow can take you to far-away places.  Where does your mind take you?
