moss!

i really enjoy moss, its warm green hue makes a good compliment to the stark nature of white snow.

Great shot

Nice work on the reflection and the exposure -- a tough task indeed when you are shooting a saturated blue sky, bright white ice, and lush green grass. Did you use a wide-angle lens for this?

Stunning!

Wow, incredible image, and report. What kind of camera/lens do you travel with? Thanks.
