Let it snow…Let it snow.
I live in Durango, Colorado, where winters are long, beautiful and the locals get really excited about “powder” in the mountains. Once the storms have hit, I like to wait a day for the roads to be plowed (they always are cleaned up quickly heading north to Durango Mountain Resort). I drive up along 550 North out of Durango for my take on the Winter Wonderland.

I often frame a tree in the foreground, and loved the “weight” of the snow on this fir tree. Clearing clouds over West Needles. ©Kit Frost
When working on a composition, I will often move around the see if left or right tree is better. ©Kit Frost
