Snow Gleam

Photographer's Statement:

I was snowshoeing with my friend in Featherville, ID, when the sun came out and began to reflect off of the beautiful white snow.  I liked how wide open this area was with the trees surrounding the bright snow.  I saw it melting into the stream nearby.  It felt almost unreal.  It was quiet and magical.
