A photograph can be a powerful thing. It’s amazing how sometimes you can look at a specific photo, and it completely transports you back to where you were at that exact moment. You may remember how you were feeling, what you were thinking, and how that experience affected you.

While out on the trail, there are always so many great opportunities for photos that bring you back. Share your favorite outdoor photo that you’ve taken this winter in our Snowshoe Magazine winter photo competition!
