Cool shot...I really like how the snow defines the shapes of the rocks and offers a beautiful contrast in texture.

I'm trying to figure if this is table-top or mountain-top : snow is great for blurring the senses !

@Ronnie 2¢: Ronnie, you bring up an interesting point. With nothing in the photograph to gauge scale, one can only image how big or small the rocks might be. As close as I can remember, the foreground rocks measured about two feet across.

@Denny Jump Photo: Thanks for your comments Denny! In situations such as this, my prior experience working in b&w and applying the zone system, comes in real handy.
