I need some sort of 3D glasses to help me compensate for not being able to see them the way most people do. The soft but at the same time crunchy snow probably looks pretty cool that way. I think you did a good job of holding onto and conveying the texture. Every snow is a little different, and I can tell what this one feels like to touch or walk on just by your photo. That's powerful.

Thank you, Min,
My aim was, obviously, to capture the more fine detail and nature of the disrupted snow's surface. I regret that, for some forgotten reason, I violated my usual practice of capturing close as well as wider views of any subject. This was adjacent to a somewhat "smeared" footprint of a running and turning white-tailed buck. Their snow prints, even in a running pattern, are usually crisp, but with the step that kicked up these disrupted fragments of snow, he had planted the hoof as the pivot for his intended turn.
I apparently became enthralled with capturing the fine detail of the disrupted snow that I forgot the wider view that would have revealed "the rest of the story"

It was, truly, a beautiful, deeply cold day, though!

Thanks for commenting, Min,

Dave

As a past observer of animal tracks I would have never guessed that's what this was.......

Hi, Frank,
Understood; the impression of the "pivot print" was not included, and had it been, out of context, probably would not have been recognized as a deer print.
Thanks for looking and commenting,

From experience, I knew it was a deer and like the exposure. The image itself feels somewhat gray and maybe a bit soft, but that could have been from the light.

I keep working at the 3D view but like this stereograph posters they used to print I don't see it and wish I could. I'll keep working at it though! S-

As I got into snow imagery I came to recognize that, beyond the speculars, snow is rendered in in a rich spectrum of grays.
Thanks, Steve, for looking and commenting.

Snow is an amazing reflector. I've seen the grays, blues, pinks, and all the shades in between. Thank you again! S-
