Mountain Pass Road
The first time I ventured out in the 18+ inches of snow last weekend, I knew exactly where I wanted to go. The Parkway was closed but the country roads underneath were just beginning to clear. The sun was out and the world was white as I drove down Laymantown Road to Mountain Pass. Coming upon the overpass, I knew the contrast of rough stone with smooth snow would be an interesting painting. Actually, this is one of my favorites. The ochre highlights on the trees and rocks against the blue snow add warmth to a very cold day.
