An intimate landscape is born. Although the tracks are a few days old they still tell a good story. When the moose first made these tracks it left a tiny amount of raised snowflakes around the outer edge of the sunken track. Each day the breezy winds kept adding to that small amount of snow until you see this pronounced rim around each track. The snow here is about 3 feet deep.

Cool photo and eye...it has a distinct blue hue. I would give it the B&W treatment and raise the contrast.

Great work, Mark! Love how the breeze added to the size of the Moose tracks.

So cool!
A very typical winter scene...but this one tells a story!
The blue shadows are perfect and very natural.
I also like it as is!
