Natural landscapes: dance of the snow shadows


I was driving along the Icefields Parkway, regularly rated among the most spectacular drives in the world, when the tops of these snow-laden bushes caused me to stop.
In the end, this photo is all about the play of shadow and light. And given the lack of colour (just blue), it was a no-brainer to remove that distraction and let you enjoy nothing but the dance of the snow shadows.
