    Snow is a marvellous blank canvas but it is also very useful for framing objects emerging from it, such as this heart-shaped piece of granite in Norway. Since I wanted to retain detail in the snow, I checked the histogram to ensure that no highlights were clipped before making the exposure.

    After a heavy snowfall, I sought out red objects in the landscape as it’s a winning combination with white. The familiar colour and shapes create a high-impact abstract.
