Cooks meadow in winter is covered in fresh snow/ice creating beautiful mountain and valley like formations all over. Early in the morning the angled light casts beautiful highlight and shadows all over the meadow. In the photograph above, I used my long lens to concentrate on one particular formation and its reflection in the water. The calm waters in the meadow provide crystal clear reflections (I used a polarizer here to remove undesired glare on the water surface), be it of the close by details or the grand Half Dome.
