Natural landscapes: the pause before winter


I enjoyed a relatively warm day in the Canadian Rockies, where the snow on the heights had not yet descended into the valleys. As I wandered around the lakeshore, this scene presented itself.
I made a strategic decision to arrange the composition to omit the lake (hidden behind the grass) and squeeze the tree trunk against the green forest, winter peaks and blue-bird sky.
