Beautiful capture with all the elements of a great photo–interesting foreground, background, and middle ground. Snow, light, trees, clouds, even footprints in the foreground! Bravo!!

Thanks everyone! Bob, I actually hate the snow in the foreground – those aren’t footprints, just pockmarks from the way it was melting. :( I loved the light and composition enough to do the image anyway, but this would definitely be best in winter with fresh snow and nice, wind-blown cornices.

Very nice composition and colors.
