Western Washington got another dusting of snow this morning. With classes cancelled, I ventured outside. I arrived at one of my favorite places to shoot, just as the snow stopped falling. Personally, I think this is one of the finest photos I've taken.

Hope you enjoy this, and as always comments and critiques are more then welcome!

I honestly love this title, I'm going to make a song, in effort to make purity threw noise.

The clean minimalism of this is just gorgeous. Fascinating in its purity and absolute silence :)

I... I just realised that I used words in my comment that made up the title of your piece... I rarely notice the title at times... and it's kind of cool and stupid at the same time, how I... get the same... feeling? Akin to the title?

idno :giggle:

And you are welcome!
