Snowy trees by highway: 2015

Snowy Trees By Highway

Initially I was so taken by the hoarfrost on the trees that I tried to shoot away from the highway to just get the trees and snow. But this shot has an interesting juxtaposition happening. We have three tree trunks as strong vertical strokes dominating the foreground, and the fine erratically shaped snow covered twigs as backup. But then the eye is drawn to a small bright, more colourful area in the upper left corner. This area provides the only horizontal lines and adds a subtle focal point with the car on the highway.
