In my home town of Thunder Bay we rarely get this beautiful hoarfrost in the valley. On this particular day it was amazing to see that it was so thick with frost and lasted most of the day. I quickly packed my camera bag and explored all day and when I came across this lone birch tree against the clear blue sky I photographed every inch of it I'm sure as I was there for at least an hour. As I lie on my back in the snow I was looking for pleasing compositions of the white branches covered with frost against the blue of the sky. As I moved around on the ground I noticed that the birch tree had three trunks that grew from one so I managed to maneuver my way to the center of the tree and shoot straight up to the sky with most of the branches in my super wide 16mm lens. I loved the results of the compostion.
