One of the things which I love to do is use my 400mm lens and get in close to scenes, panning to see things which the human eye otherwise can not see. This is one of those types of landscapes, that was basically invisible to the naked eye. When I was checking out the landscape, this composition really caught my eye and how the light was dancing against the freshly covered in frost and snow Pine trees. Watching the snow clouds come over the mountain top and the sunlight as it worked it’s magic, playing peekaboo through the cloud cover…it was pretty darn magical! Photographed in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.
