Description

For years one of my two bucket list locations was the Canadian Rockies. Upon retirement I decided to visit them in the winter so as to contrast with my Florida roots and shoot snow and ice which I had never done before. Armed with Darwin Wiggett's wonderful photographic guidebooks to the area, I commenced visiting some of the iconic and some of the less familiar beautiful places of the Canadian Rockies. Before I arrived in the area I had this image in mind, one I thought would be easy to locate and capture. Much to my surprise, it took quite a bit of searching to find an isolated leaf in the snow. In wooded areas, either all the leaves were gone or they were always clustered very close to each other or they were not lying on a nice blanket of pristine snow.
