It was some little after the sand storm. I was outside for 4 hours hunting for a shot. Besides the cold, it was now white and silent. There was no movement and it felt like I was the only one there, no plants no animals. Maybe they were also shocked by the beauty of this infinite whiteness.I was walking through the snow covered hill to get to home, have some coffee and check the photos that i had taken. First there was nothing but as I walked towards the top of the hill I started to see some dark edgess on the horizon, then I realized they were tops of the pine trees. A little after I was able to see the rest. It looked like an island, island full of trees. I said to myself, yes this is what I seek. I got my position, did the matering job myself as it would be tough challenge for the camera in this ulitmate whitness. The frame I want was full of white, hence my camera would not read the scene as I wanted. Did my best then took the shot. And also I waited for a short time thinking, if a rabbit would came out of its hole and become my main subject in this shot. Of course it did not happen. I was still the only one there.
