Solitude

Solitude

This scene was in the making for months. I noticed these dead trees in a pond during the summer and was amazed at how bleached they were.  I knew it would be impactful in the winter with the white of the snow and the starkness of the trees.  On a blue sky winter day, I waited for  the sun to be low on the horizon, which enabled me to capture the long shadows extending over a new blanket of snow.
