I've long loved where I live in Colorado. We have a good view, and fantastic neighbors. It's a great way for me to practice my photography, especially when we get a snowfall.
We got some nice snow over the weekend, so I took the opportunity to go out just around the house and take some shots. It was 5 degrees outside, so I didn't last long, but I took this one in the backyard. I had to keep shooing the dogs away so they didn't jostle the tripod. My goal was to shoot the neighbor's pine tree with the mountain in the background, and this is the shot I liked the best, because of the other foreground elements, giving it a sense of depth.
