Outstanding image, Ken. The powdered sugar coating adds great textural interest while hiding potential distractions and driving all attention to the design of that great tree against the rock. Congratulations on receiving an award for this one. It's very well deserved.

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile

I don't know this tree and have never been there, but this is certainly a striking composition, Ken! The starkness and simplicity are awesome - the snow coating really makes this special! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on this outstanding Finalist and Good luck in the next round!
