© 2013 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

I took this image while out cross country skiing last week. Lots of fresh snow, a nice frosting on the foliage, and a few beautiful lingering autumn leaves made for a beautiful subject. It's always nice when a few of them "hang around". Canon's little "shorty-forty" is a great optic and makes my 5dMkII almost portable.
