Big Drift Posted on January 31, 2012 by Sheila Creighton Posted in Landscape Tagged drift, dusk, Gravenhurst, Muskoka, photography, snow, winter 24 Comments I found this desert-like windswept view, of a hill and snow drift in Gravenhurst behind the grocery store lit by a parking lot light as the sky loses colour for the day. © Sheila Creighton 2012 Share this:ShareFacebookEmailTwitterPinterestLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading...

Very beautiful and clear. 🙂
It looks like the surface of a planet far away.
It could be a moonscape!
ha ha … yes. somewhere desolate and far away…
Wow, behind a grocery store you say? It looks like some isolated mountain top somewhere exotic! Superb stuff, the lines, the contrasting colours, the minimalism…I love everything about it!
thanks jp! yes, right behind the grocery store – of course this is a northern town in a rugged environment and I had to crouch down to get just this view.
Absolutely perfect… great lines, great light..
thanks hellen – one of those lucky spots on my way home from work.
Gosh – one almost expects an astronaut to come bouncing along at any moment! I like the dark blue sky beyond.
ha – but then he’d leave footprints in the windswept ground….
thanks e – I am always amazed at the different ways snow can look.
I love the way the wind carves its patterns in the snow.
thanks Maggie – it is cool (literally) 🙂
thanks mimo – one of my recent faves. I’m getting to be such a fan of minimalism.
Very beautiful, Sheila >>> almost mono! Minimalism rules ok! Adrian
thanks Adrian – yes it does rule.. ha ha
Another absolute stunner!!
thanks aj. I’m always amazed where images present themselves.
I am so happy that there’s been hardly any snow here this winter (so far), but this is a beauty from afar.
thanks – I figure if it’s winter we might as well have snow. We are having a very mild, non-snowy winter for the most part and it’s already February.
Looks like the surface of a moon or alien planet. Great shot and processing
thanks Stevie – I’m finding that snow, like water has so many looks and digital can pick up them all.. so different than film.
