|I liked this image from last week so much it had to be shared. The rounded glaciated rocks at upper left juxtaposed to the rubble below; the summer snow juxtaposed to water; the skier confronting the wide open. It says "wild." And the red snow is real, not a digital aberration (it’s that interesting "watermelon snow" algae). Don’t you love the thousands of variations snow morphs through over the seasons? It even turns red!
