TheAspenStand: What Text is Appropriate?

What Text is Appropriate?

     I know you've heard the adage "A picture is worth a thousand words." Maybe,  but sometimes I like to plant a seed by adding a bit of text with some images. I tend to do it when I feel there's an appropriate amount of  negative space to aesthetically accommodate the text.
     I'd been contemplating what, if any text, would be appropriate on products with one of my snow drift photographs. I didn't find any particular quotes about "snow" or "snow drifts that moved me and nature, as a category, just wasn't working for me either. 
     Out of coincidence, I found just what I was looking for with this quote by an anonymous source. It speaks in conjunction with the image and not for the image.
     You'll find the "Snow Drift Over Rocks" photograph on multiple products some with and some without the text in TheAspenStand.
     The binder is simply the photograph and text whereas on the mug, I combined the original and a horizontally flipped image to leave space in the middle of the mug leaving ample space for the text.
     I'd love to hear your thoughts.
