About this Photograph
"I was working on a story about the Ozark Highlands Trail in Arkansas. It takes about 14 hours to drive from Atlanta where I live to White Rock Mountain, the highest spot on the trail. I wanted to photograph the trail in all the seasons, but the winter was the most difficult. In recent years there had not been little or no snow. When it did snow, it usually didn't last for long. One evening in Atlanta I heard about a storm heading for Arkansas. I packed up quickly, drove all night and at two in the afternoon arrived to find a snowstorm. The forest was getting a small, but significant dusting of snow. I'm not sure why the two trees are bent, but those forms caught my attention and made the long drive worthwhile."


  • Each fine art print is printed on archival paper and individually signed by Peter Essick.
  • 20"H x 24"W.

In the 25 years that photographer Peter Essick has shot for National Geographic, he's visited all seven continents, 100 countries, and each of the 50 states. He's photographed more than 30 stories on history, cultural groups, science, and environmental issues, but the subject he likes best is the wilderness landscape. He says, "I believe these landscapes are special treasures that offer almost unlimited creative potential for the artist. It is my hope that these posters will be affirmations of the beauty, inspiring power, and human need for natural lands."
