  2. Beautiful. We drove through Colorado this winter and I had the same thought gazing on similar snow-covered trees. Lovely!

      Thanks! The trees are covered not only by snow but also by ice, which has accumulated on branches. The trees are shallow to avoid braking of the branches.

      • That explains a lot. I was very struck by the narrowness of the evergreens in Colorado but this gives me the “why.” What kind of trees are these? White Fir?

      Siberian Spruce (Picea obovata), I think not exactly but very close.

  3. I’m afraid I’m one of those people who think that ‘fir trees’ (generic description!) are pretty dull – until it snows when they really come into their own. Perfect white snow, blue sky and a touch of green – wonderful 🙂
