Winter has set down it’s roots here. And I couldn’t be happier. Besides all the cold weather fun it brings it also produces a beautiful palette for black and white. Over the pass from where I live is the Gunnison River valley which produces some of the coldest temperatures in the lower 48, sometimes even colder than parts of Alaska. This was shot near the base of the pass off the main road and down a gravel lane that dead ends into a snow bank. A perfect place to find the serenity that winter creates.
