I love snow. I am a Nordic skier and a ski coach. As much as I look forward to great skiing, as a photographer, my favorite time to photograph is when it is cold and there isn't any snow. The lakes are frozen, the streams are beginning to freeze over, forming delicate chandeliers if ice. This image was taken when the temperature was -3F, tough on my hands and my camera, beautiful and worth the bit of discomfort.
