A tree in new snow

Taken just under a month ago, I'm sure the landscape has changed and this beautiful photo would look drastically different if taken today...

The photographer says: North Shore of Lake Superior, near Split Rock Lighthouse in Minnesota.

Years ago when I first saw the paintings of the Group of Seven - particularly Lawren Harris - I thought he was over-stylizing the northern landscape. Now I see I owe him an apology. What I took for impressionism is actually the way the wind shapes things up here...!
