Some of my favorite images are those taken in inclement weather. When the forecast calls for these conditions I am usually ready to head out early. Bright blue sky images make for nice stock images, but the mystery and mood evoked by misty mornings or blowing snow can become truly special images. The above photo depicts a burnt out Pine forest taken in Kootenay National Park on just such a day.

Sawback burn, Banff National Park, during a moderate snowfall. The burn was intentionally set to the forest in 1993.
