Description

Treading through snow, I made my way into the depths of Box Canon, where I found this amazing scene in December. The small strip of deep blue sky overhead gave the perfect light for a long exposure as the sun was setting. The biggest challenge here was finding a place where the mist would not cover the lens in water, as many shots were ruined from this. Exposing for 20 seconds allowed the colors of the rocks to melt through the water, a perfect compliment to the static frozen ice.
