The winter sun peeks through the forest as it sets, staining the snow pink with its brilliance.
I took this photograph at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, while delicately tiptoeing on top of a big pile of snow and hoping not to fall through. It was bitterly cold, and snow had lodged itself inside of my boots. We’d waited for a spectacular sunset over Crater Lake itself, but all was blah and boring. Suddenly, the world changed into a magical land of glowing snow and long dramatic shadows. The setting sun flared dramatically through my camera lens, creating a bright golden starburst peeking out through the snow-heavy trees.
