During a snowshoe trek with my camera in the Pimbina sector of Mont Tremblant National Park, I was, as usual, hunting for images. Passing through this location, my attention was captured by this little piece of snow-created sculpture that looks like a globin holding a pole and resting on a dead tree.
A cute little example of pareidolia! Before approaching my subject, I used a 270 mm focal length (35 mm equivalent) to compose the ‘portrait’ and isolate my subject from his background. As usual, I overexposed to have a perfect histogram (ETTR). After making the image, I finally approached this natural art to see if it was as real as it appeared from a distance. And yes, it was pure snow and ice, and of course, I left it untouched. Winter can give us some quirky gifts.
