A distant figure in the snow

I think that this is my favourite shot from the roll I put through the Holga on the recent snowy day (although not the most recent lot though. We had another fall this morning that caused chaos for early morning drivers on their way to work – my wife included).

I like the way the birches lean across the path here and the snow adds a special touch. The lone figure further down the path is the icing on the cake.

  1. Great capture! The traces in the snow, the trees forming a triangle and lead your eye to the tiny figure in the distance. Works amazing in Monochrome and that vignette adds a miniature effect.
