A warm double digit degree day -Yeah!

This winter, any day above zero degrees is a good one.

Ahhh Winter

After the Winter by Claude McKay

“Some day, when trees have shed their leaves
And against the morning’s white
The shivering birds beneath the eaves
Have sheltered for the night”

I never tire of photographing the outdoors at any season.

Winter Woods

Very invigorating to hike through the woods on a cold winter day. The cold air and smell of the pines just makes me glad to be alive.Every season has something special to offer. Compared to summer it is like a window has opened and you can see things that were totally hidden with all the leaves.
The trails I hiked today meander through meadows,marshes, pine forests, and along unfrozen rivers.

A poem I like:

Winter Woods
Winter slips silently around me
Walking me to cold, crisp woods
To gaze upon the peaceful slumber
Suddenly exhilarated, restored in found solace
