Mountain Ranges

This is the snow on the front bank of the side yard, slowly melting around the time of sunset. It is fascinating to me that is has this scalloped form to it - when it fell, and after it was covered with ice, it was always as flat as a skating rink. I can't come up with a theory of why if melts this way. Caught by the setting sun it has these beautiful colors - orange on the side lit by the sun, and blue on the side lit by the blue light of the sky. It does feel as if it is an aerial photograph of a series of mountain ranges.
