This was taken in Prescott, Arizona last Winter after one of their biggest snow storms. The sun was hitting this spot just perfectly, showing all the glistening sparkles in the snow, as the sun was shinning through the trees into the stream. This was one of my favorite moments of shooting photos in the snow. It was one of the places you just had to be there and see it to appreciate it. The snow was untouched and all you could hear is the wind blowing through the trees. It was very cold out, and I remember telling myself, this is one time cold can not matter, this is a lifetime moment. Found this down some old little country road.
