Jan 2010, New Boston, NH
Taken from a bridge...wrong shoes for going mucking about in snow...I think it came out well and I didn't even get run over!
Why it's in the best of 2010 - because even if I had planned this shot and spent a lot of time framing and composing, it couldn't have been done better. As it was it was a grab shot that took me only seconds to shoot. The Piscataquog is a very picturesque river and so it's hard to get a bad image of it, but I like this one particularly because of the strong S curve of the dark river that leads your eye right through the frame. The white snow is almost blinding in spots, but the surrounding trees and sky keep your eyes in the shot. Someone commented that she expected to see a group of barbarians on horseback come bursting through and I love that.
