grey sky light snowfall two deer run between the snow rounded anthills and stop run uphill into the trees stop run disappear fresh deer tracks rounded snow at the very edge of the stream fallen dead trees across the stream snaking course of the stream snow covered anthills and bushes snow covered sand dry grey riverbed rocks arching reeds on flat ground snow covered twisting pine tree on the slope snow smoothed deer path sudden disturbed capercaillie flying low through the trees snow smoothed deer path crossed by deer tracks filling with snow branches bending with the weight of snow sound of the small stream
(Hamish Fulton, 1985)
