I took this picture on the first serious winter hike I took. It's still one of the most difficult hikes I have undertaken (partly because I was still pretty inexperienced). It was cold and wet and then cold again. It was the first (but not the last...) time I experienced frozen shoes. There was snow, then sunshine and melding snow, then rain, then frost again. It was glorious. At one point, there was a heavy fog, and we had very bad visibility. The white mountain we were on just seemed to end into grey nothingness. There were some small trees dotted around, and they were covered in a very thin layer of frozen mist. My viewfinder was misted over, so I shot from the hip. A lucky shot, but it turned out perfect.
