I got myself a pair of snowshoes the other week, so of course I had to go use them today after the snowfall overnight. I didn't find much to shoot along the way, but I did like the way the sun was streaming through some of the snow covered pines. Unfortunately, this little branch was a bit out of my reach with the reversed 50mm lens, so I just held the camera up to the branch, took 3 shots and hoped for the best. I'm so glad I don't shoot with film. I'd go broke developing all my rotten shots.

Anyway, I'm not sure where the vivid blue background came from, I suppose up into the other snow covered pines, but I didn't adjust the color of the shot, just some levels, cropping, dodging and burning. All in all, not a great day for photos, but it was a nice hike.
