Winter Snow and River 2
The gray skies had kept the landscape muted this particular day. But I was privileged to see the sun break through for a minute or so. It started in the background of this image. It worked its way to the foreground and when it shone over the river and snow in such a way, I took the image as you see it here. I love the long shadows in the foreground. It not only tells the story of the sun low in the sky as the end of the day was nearing. It reminds me that winter is long here; it cast its shadow long and far. But within the cold and sometimes treacherous reach of winter, beauty does exist. The sun does shine. Winter is full of wonders for those who look for it.
