Berthoud Pass

I have a whole new respect for all you nature photogs!! It may seem self-evident (but not always so from the heat-seated comfort of my car) - but it's COLD in the winter. It was about 2 degrees (F) outside, figured I'd just stop, hop out, climb a snow bank and get the shot. Right after I took this, I slipped and fell into a deep snowdrift. Holding the camera HIGH; willing to sacrifice a few minor bones if need be - it was safe. I was covered in snow, couldn't get out with just one hand free, and it was losing it's feeling anyways.... so KUDOS to all you who take those great winter photos!!!
