Iced Tor
Rams Head Range

I thought of this shot all season, just waiting for the snow to melt enough for there to be plenty of water in the pools in front of the Tor but still with some snow and ice along the sides.
I had headed up on a scouting mission two weeks earlier to check up on it and see how the thaw was going, but the foreground was still totally covered in snow. Two other mates and I gave it two weeks and I think we timed it perfectly.
