When it snows around here, late in the winter, the snow gets kind of sticky and if the wind blows - it sticks to the trees pretty well, defining them. The snow outlines the contour of the branch, showing both settling snow and blowing snow. This is one such scene. The location of this scene is west of a local road called Quaker Road. It flows under the road, through a culvert. The reason I was drawn to this spot is the complex nature of the snow, branches and reflection, as well as the changes in surface - ice, open water, snow and wood. I tried to introduce some hint of color but it looked too phony so I left it just a composition in gray, white and black. I confess that it was more complex than my brain could handle - I had to section off smaller parts of both the photo and the painting, blocking out all other distractions - or allow my brain to burst.
