Western Winter Serenity

Moraine Valley in Rocky Mountain National Park captured New Years Day, 2008.....Cold, blustery, windy, freezing, and damn beautiful! Well worth the cold and wind to get a shot like this as I sat frozen with my tripod. Stay tuned, many more to come from my New Years Day shoot!

Thoughts welcomed, print to come

Quick edit---The animal tracks in the snow are Elk

Geeze baby, I haven't even gotten out there yet and I already want to come in the winter :love:

You know I haven't been in the snow in YEARS and wow... this just calls me to come breath in that cold fresh air.

Show me your magic and cast a spell on me! :heart:
