Breaking Trail by George Cousins


Small (21.9" x 16.4")

Available to buy on…

December 22, 2008, we had an unusual heavy snowfall on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, and living in a rural area meant breaking trail the best way one could. The photo was an after-thought!
This year, as of today (January 22,2010) we’ve had no snow at all. Climate change!

    Ah I’ve one similar to this snow shoeing in North Minnesota- wonderful winter shot – love it.

  • Hi Braedene, glad you liked it..we seldom get much snow here, haven’t had any this year so when we do, it’s usually a good heavy one like this..good for some nice pics!
