Reconciliation by David Richter
Saturday, 22nd February 2014


by David Richter

For too long the winter has been holding out this year to make a strong comeback this past weekend with temperatures deep into the arctic range. On the crest of the Ore Mountains, the sun was able to burn off the heavy fog for short periods of time. Fortunately, I found myself in a birch forest dotted with small beech trees and the occasional spruce and fir, all covered in a thick layer of rime ice.
Equipment: Canon 7D, Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8
