It powders all the wood,
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road.
Of mountain and of plain,
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again.
At the base of the Elk Mountains, at an altitude of 9,521 feet, this area receives large amounts of snow each winter. Averaging 295 inches per season. And while the snow was late this year, by December 21st, the region had seen considerable accumulation.
“There is a grandeur to this topography which I chose not to photograph. Transfixed by the shadows cast by trees and plants in the low solstice light. The shortest day of the year producing some of the subtlest gestures.”
“The shadows create a second presence. A reflection and extension of the original. Fragile and impermanent. These are the rewards of looking closely, carefully, at the landscape in front of us.” – Lincoln Schatz
