A Walk Through the Orchard

Though the  days are slowly lengthening, the orchards in Western Colorado still sleep under a blanket of snow. In this shot, two kids on the way home from school cut through a pear orchard outside Paonia, Colorado. Hard to imagine that in just  a couple of months this scene will be awash in white petals and buzzing with bees.
