A White Christmas on Hoth!

 Ski Trooper, by Avanaut, on flickr

Classic Photography

For the next in my series of classic photography I’ve returned to Hoth, and chosen this wonderful image by Vesa Lehtimäki, better known as Avanaut.  It seemed fitting to choose something that was almost festive, and what represents the holiday spirit better than a Skiing Snowtrooper!

I love the composition; it’s clean and almost minimalist but the flying powdery ‘snow’ and lighting take it to another level.  It just proves that the Imperials were nice guys after all, and it was Rebel propaganda which prevented them from all getting along together in the universe!
