high-lighted horizontal

We have experienced relatively light snowfall amounts over the past few winters. This year snows came abundantly and often. It has been a while since we had such accumulation. This seems to make winter last longer. So although the calendar tells us it is spring, our environment is still buried in the white stuff.  This makes ‘off trail’ snowshoeing a challenge. When I spotted a scene I wanted to capture with my big camera, I had to track through almost knee deep snow to get there.
