Rural landscapes: the clash of autumn and winter


I drove into this parking lot in the Canadian Rocky Mountains intending to see if there were any good autumn landscapes. Then I saw how the snowy tire tracks were interacting with thousands of newly fallen leaves and forgot all about the landscapes.
Intimate scenes like this, with the tracks leading you through the random (yet artistic) scatterings of leaves, fascinated me for the next 45 minutes.
