This was the view out of my window when I woke up one morning just outside of Banff, Alberta. The smooth expanse of the white stuff stretched out in all directions. As I examined the undulations, I started seeing a pattern on the surface of the snow.
The wind had blown the loose flakes away and left regular indentations that looked almost like wood grain.
The snow had capped a juniper on our front lawn but the wind carved a depression around it.
This is one of my favourites. I like the way the shadow gets quite dark in the background. The old flower stems curl around and form a rough heart with the shadows.
Have fun shooting in the snow!
