16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tree island, Sun Peaks

This was taken on a very low visibility day at Sun Peaks ski resort in Canada. There was some amazing snow to ski but we could barely see so we decided to go on a photo finding mission instead. This island of trees is out the back of the resort and because it was so clowdy the slopes were deserted. These eerie almost ghostly trees are what we could see from the chair lift, the silence was just as eerie.
