Wind blowing snow on the Rocky Mountains

Strong upper-level winds were blowing when Marie Whisenant photographed this Rocky Mountain peak in southern Colorado. "I was captivated by the snow blowing off the peak, as well as the repetition of form in the composition," the Wisconsin resident writes. She used a Nikon D100 and a 70-300mm lens.
