Photographer's Note

A great expanse of open field allows the wind to sweep the snow until at last it comes to rest against who knows what. Once the first few flakes of snow are caught, the accumulation just keeps on building while the wind continues to relentlessly sweep the frozen crystals over the top.
That way too are sand dunes built -- but that is another part of the world -- and another story!
Here, a snowplough cleared the drifts from the roadway and this built a new obstacle, but the wind and snow have already built a new drift, one that threatens to collapse and create a mini avalanche. Nature will have her way.
Tech: cropped, resized and reduced noise (thank you Fisher for your guidelines for that!)
