One of the earlier Conversations With Nature photographs. This image was constructed in the studio under hot lights. I used wild grapes I found nearby and built the pieces together into one plant and then added snow by bringing it in from outside. I could get about two shots before the snow melted. I did that a few times until I thought I had the photograph I wanted. This subject has been a favourite – both showing lovely shades of purple and reminding people of Canadian ice wine.
