Wind... a self portrait

28mm f8 1/250s ISO200
Tanawha Trail, Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, North Carolina
The elements created a natural beauty.  The wind pushed and pulled on the delicate snow carving an image of itself into the surface.  The sun joins in to glaze and protect. The wind in a thankful gesture dusts the canvas one more time.  Self portrait complete.

These mallard ducks are at the buffet.  I suppose there is no one to say "You Go Now- You Been Here Four Hour."  Eat up my fine feathered friends.
