Looks cold and lovely, DBH. Love that blue, and the frost on the twigs and needles. Is it a snowshoe path?

Thanks for the comment!
It was indeed cold and lovely, about -20 with brilliant mid-afternoon low angle sun and loads of frost. Just a well-trodden foot path.

Thanks for the kind words. I have had this lens for less than a week and am still exploring its perspective possibilities. It worked well with the lighting and dense growth along the path.

Graunke Park. It's a little zone of natural forest in the corner of 50st and 34ave, a few blocks from my house. We paid a premium on our city taxes for a few years to keep it so might as well enjoy it. The lighting and frost and cold gave me a little natural wonderland to myself. Sure would be nice to spend a weekend in the mountains, though - like, say, Banff...
