This a wonderfully simple photo that is all about composition. I struggled for several shots to make this scene interesting, and this is the simple composition that finally did it. I was initially interested in the beautiful texture that the light dusting of snow created on the lawn, but no matter what I did, I couldn’t get that to translate into a real photograph. The carefully landscaped circle outlining the base of the tree placed carefully in the corner was the missing piece of the puzzle.
Taken with a Carl Zeiss 135mm f2 apo sonnar lens mounted on a Canon 1DX.
