Natural landscapes: the dramatic landscape of snow


These incredible, sensual formations are caused by a new layer of snow falling on plowed snow at the entrance to one of the most popular places in the Canadian Rockies: the gobsmacking lookout over Peyto Lake.
I was fascinated by the abstract play of light and shadow and how it illuminated the texture of the snow. So before I went any further, I spent a half-hour just exploring these drifts. The colour version is a compelling mix of blues, but going black-and-white produced this eye-popping drama.
