Snow covered moraines

Vitosha, the mountain raising above the Bulgarian capital city Sofia, has many moraine fields. The rocks have been shaped and rounded by the elements for thousands of years. Hiking through the moraines can be a challenge, or fun, depending on the attitude.
The photographs I used, attracted me with the smooth shapes of the snow-covered rocks and the interesting light and shadow effects.

Thank you, Jane an Judy, for the nice comments!

Jane, here we've had a couple of days with temperatures above freezing! This won't last long, but brings some hope :)

Judy, I have been trying to improve my treatment of light color values and I'm glad with the result.

Wow, nice! I do love the smooth snow as you stated. You've definitely done a great job on the shadows. Very nice over all! I was very intrigued by it as soon as I hit the page.
