It was snowing hard and I was struggling to keep my camera dry as I walked all over this college campus, hoping someone would come along with a colorful jacket or hat or umbrella (preferably red) to stand out in the grey scene. And then he walked right past me. Never expected red pants, but I composed quickly and got just this one shot before he turned the corner. I didn't even notice the "bonus" bit of red in the distant walker until I started shooting. I love when that happens!

    Great top element in the foreground... and then the snowy ground that extends into the depths. Also like the placement of your walker,
