"On the first day the snow fell, I went flying and taking pictures, not to miss the chance of capturing the moments while the trees are still holding the fresh snow," says Janulis.

"I have always loved looking at perspectives from above; it allows us to see so many things that would otherwise be unnoticed," says Janulis.
