Winter's Last Embrace

Snow Covered Forest
A few weeks ago my wife and I took a short trip to the mountains above Scotts Mills, Oregon.

We were expecting to come across some muddy trails and partly sunny skies. Instead we were greeted with Winter's last temper tantrum.

The stark nature of the foggy forest and the snow covered forest floor begged for a black and white conversion. As I have said many times before, winter demands to be captured in black and white.

We are living in a time when finding virtually untouched beauty is harder and harder. These days you have travel further and further to find these natural and stunning environments.

Making the trip to the mountains did not deliver us what we expected, but it gave is much more than we could have hoped for. It just proves that Mother Nature can be kind and giving, if we just give her a chance.
