Comments - Striking winter view of two tall pine trees heavily laden with snow. The clumps of snow are lightly embossed, enhancing the three-dimensional effect of the shadows and dark foliage. The clearing sky is brightened with lavender clouds edges in warm orange, the blue shaded to a deeper tone near the top. Dry reeds and grasses peek through the drifts of snow across the ground. A wonderful design.
