Last minute entry, no time to figure out what to do with it. Ah well, what's the worst that could happen?

Edit: Apparently the worst that could happen is a personal best.I've been eyeballing these trees for the better part of a year on the way to work every day. I wanted to get them in a picture somehow, but never expected it to be minimal. Typically the backdrop for these trees is a massive mountain range with Long's Peak high in the background. On the last day of the challenge window I was driving home and it was snowing, with the snow blocking the view to the mountains making it perfect for this challenge. I made it home with about a half an hour to get the image processed before I had to leave for other commitments. That said, I didn't expect it to do as well as it did!

Well-composed image of a pair of trees, which appear to be dancing together, in a stubbly, snow covered field. It's about texture and pattern, and admirably observed.
