So there I was (7:00 Am on Thursday Feb 22 2007) in the middle of a snowstorm, camera on tripod with me, under a large parka, in the middle of a field. And I feel like a photographer :D

I wish I could clone out those sensor marks ... damn it!

I love this shot. Hope this does well

Wow! What a gorgeous photo. The minute I saw it, I envisioned it with a big white mat in a simple black frame in a room with alot of white! It is awesome in its simplicity and beauty!

Nice light and shadow on the tree and lovely shape/ composition. The faded ground and sky work very well here.
