This tall narrow view is a composite of multiple images. I was out making closeups of wildflowers on a stormy day with a macro lens when I found this scene. I made several images to stitch together rather than changing to a wide angle lens.
On a hard crusted drift at the big meadow’s margin I made this photograph facing the winter wind. In the woods behind me the snow was soft and deep except where I’d broken a trail with my snowshoes to get to this place, one of my favorites. If I had put on my face mask I might have gone farther up the meadow making images along the way, but this day I spent only a few minutes on the crusty edge before heading back into the trees.
