Under close study, snow proves to be one of the earth's truly malleable substances. Its density ranges from weightless powder to solid ice, its forms can be soft and subtle, or as jagged as a serrated blade. While temperature, humidity, radiation and time all work to constantly change the snow, perhaps no force has greater power to effect sudden change than the wind. A single hour of wind can completely transform a smooth snowscape into infinite sweeping lines and feathered edges, eventually sculpting the snow into hard masses of endless subtle design.
Atop a peak in Canada's Monashee Mountains on New Year's Eve, I turned my hood to the wind and my camera to the snow to capture some of the nearly Martian landscape as hard winds from the north played with the fresh snow crystals as a child plays with an assortment of Legos. Always building, then destroying, then building anew.
