Glacier National Park – It was a dark cloudy day on Sperry trail.  The cedars were dusted with fresh snow fall and looking like a holiday card.  I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the holidays than to be tromping through the snow in the crisp mountain air.

I love how the color stands out in winter photos.  I know that I have passed this tree many times before but I have never noticed the vibrant yellow color of the lichen.  When everything around you is blanketed in glittering white, the remaining color really catches your eye.

The photo on the left is a perfect example of winter coloring, the cedar tree in the foreground is a bright spot of color.  There is very little color in some of these landscapes making what remains the focus of attention.

The two photos above were taken with different settings and I found myself unable to choose which was better.  I think I lean toward the clarity of the one on the left but then I change my mind.  Let me know what you think.

The beauty of this intensely red ice encrusted branch against the backdrop of cedar trees really caught my eye.  If you tip your head to the right, the ice is shaped like a heart.  Happy Holidays from Montana!
