This Zen-like arrangement of trees is sits right beside the gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. This particular stretch is one that passes through areas of farmland and neighborhoods, and lacks the typical big views associated with this road. It's beautiful despite that, and is close enough to my home that I am working to capture the scene under many different conditions, and in all seasons. On this occasion, 2 feet of snow had fallen the day prior and I knew it would be a beautifully simple and still scene. Access onto the Parkway was by foot, as the road regularly closes in the winter.
