Not thinking too much I crossed double solids :) and parked on the other side. I left the car and walked in the knee deep snow for like 10 meters further from the road to reach untouched powder and take some nice sunset photos. This was one of them." • Amador Loureiro - "untitled image" • Woubishet Z.
