This has to be one of my favourite images from the 2017/18 winter. We had just received a massive dump of snow that was followed by days and days of freezing temperatures and flat grey skies.
I took this image on way to photograph in the mountains but had taken a different route to explore a bit. I came across this copse of trees with an interesting line leading up to them. From what I could tell was that on the south side (rhs of the image) there had been a slight melt and the grasses were prodding through the snow.
This image was shot in standard 4x3 format with the intention to crop to 16x9 or less. This was due to only having a 200mm lens. Any closer and I would have lost the perspective and ricked being chased by an angry farmer if I went onto his land.
