I am sorry it has been a little while since I have been able to post! I have been at my family cabin in Ontario, Canada and didn’t have access to the internet. Luckily, I was able to slip away for a few days of solitude and silence, of true quiet. Warm weather is now invading the North and soon much of the snow and ice will be gone. However, I was able to get a few deep breaths of the cool crisp winter air before it all has passed, and I feel much richer for that. Winter does something to the soul, perhaps it causes the soul and mind to slow down, or contemplate the value of life and living -even if I cannot describe it something about it always speaks to me in the depths of my being. The frozen forests and myself.
The photographs below were taken on such a day when I was out for a long snowshoe through the pine-covered cliffs and ridges. It was midday and I wanted a scenic, warm place to eat lunch while I was out. After searching, I found the perfect place on a warm, sunny ridge that was protected from the wind. I hope you enjoy the photographs as I enjoyed the quiet and winter warmth while at this spot!
