We love this photograph. It instantly gives you the impression of a harsh environment; the walker is leaning into the wind, the snow is being blown into patterns on the ground and creates a slightly misty look in the shadow of the mountain. The sun is poised in the sky on the brink of setting behind the mountain, so the walker will soon be plunged into darkness. This photograph tells a story without needing to include much in the shot at all. A wonderfully dramatic capture.
