Winter Wonderland

One of the things I seems to enjoy most when out taking pictures is the rush to find a new perspective in the little time you have during a setting sun.  On this night, I managed to capture 4 or 5 different comps with the sunburst as it transitioned from the clouds to the horizon.  I was sprinting like a mad man in upwards of a foot and a half of drifted snow trying to find different looks.  I kept running higher up the hill in this shot as the sun continued to drop lower in the sky.  This shot was one of the earlier sunburst shots I took that cold snowy evening.  But it was a blast (not to mention a little exercise as well, it’s hard to sprint when there is snow up to your knee caps).
