Winter Light

happy winter!

this photo was taken today on my first official winter hike. i  love the pinkish winter light and the stark shadows when walking through wooded areas in winter. i’m spending the week at richard’s; he happens to live across from a nature preserve. i know, how lucky could a gal get to have a boyfriend live right across the road from a nature preserve? i am very lucky indeed, in more ways than one.

i like having time off in the winter, it gives me time to appreciate nature in a very different way than in the warmer months; trees with their bare branches, covered in snow instead of leaves, frozen streams, and especially the quiet and stillness. it’s amazing to me how nature adapts to the changing seasons.

what do you appreciate about winter?

peace,

julayne
