© 2013 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

I've borrowed another Louis L'Amour title because it was so apt for this image. Against the monochrome of a fresh blanket of snow on the side of this hill I could see the low mountain on the far side of the river beyond. The beautifully frosted trees provided natural framing, so I knew I had to capture this scene!
