This photograph is so stunning it is hard to believe it is not computer-generated. Flying high above snowy alps in Switzerland, we are traveling along with this crow. The details are so sharp we can see the details in nearly every feather on his body. His head is down, putting the strength of his shoulders on full display. The white snowdrifts blurring below make a wonderfully contrasting backdrop for the bold blackness of the bird. The tiny people walking add scale, showing us just how high in the sky we are, surrounded by natural wonder.
