This image conveys the ultimate peace and solitude that can be found in nature if we allow ourselves the time to see what is offered. I visited this location each season for about three years. I knew there was something special here, it spoke to me, but I had to wait for the perfect moment to bring the vision to fruition. This early winter morning was overcast and lightly snowing, which softened the light, creating the feel and mood I had felt for so long. I composed this image on a 4×10 inch sheet of film, ensuring the print quality would match my vision of subtlety and infinite detail. I hope this brings you the same feeling of peace as I felt when I experienced this moment.
