Winter in the Joe

Traditionally in Idaho, February accumulates its largest snow fall. There is a misconception that this time of year is drear and withdrawn from color, but when examined, the subtle radiance of this season produces extraordinary color. 

With help of a local North Idaho outfitter Peak Adventures and twenty three inches of fresh snow, last week was a great time to experience and photograph the winter landscape.  The weather broke and we spent two cold nights in the remote Idaho back country.

These are winter images from Mark's recent project with the Coeur d'Alene tribe in the St. Joe National Forest. To view more image follow this hot link to Mark's web page.
