Taken with the Nikon, 18-55mm F3.5. + PL filter. Location is a hill in front of my house made by construction workers dumping their dirt from landscaping for housing. The hill is covered with snow after a snow storm. Clouds are still dissipating from the storm. Using a self timer, I ran up the hill in 30 seconds with my umbrella to pose. I was surprised that the 4 geese (in the middle) ended up in the photo. Tone editing to brighten up the photo in post editing.

"Hiver" means winter in French.

    Those surprise geese really add some extra impact to the strong image. I thought it might be white sands park, but shows how you can be creative and find revealing landscapes at home.
