Delicate Winter Shadows
While working on my photographs of winter scenes during these hot summer days my mind drifts back to one of my favourite "cool" winter activities and that is to go snow shoeing, usually with my camera. There are numerous areas to snow shoe in the B.C.'s Okanagan Valley, Silver Star near Vernon is one area that I love to gallivant around the wooded trails and frozen lakes filled with wonderful powdered snow, which on a sunny day sparkles like millions of diamonds. Another nice spot that I frequent quite often is the K-9 Trail just 8 km from my home where the above picture was made with my 4 x 5 view camera in February of this year.
