I can't imagine not living in a place that has a change of seasons-for me it's like I can't wait for what is around the corner in the next progression of the year. Some I'd like to spend a lot longer with (Fall) and others I'm starting to appreciate more (Spring). Photography sure spurs my interest in what lies next, what I'll discover in the next season. I love winter and snow, especially a new snow, and we've had our share this year. Cross country skis and snowshoes provide the means to explore and snow provides the canvas. The tracks provide the mystery of what was going on the previous night and day.
The long low light, even at mid-day, can bring out interest from patterns and lines in the snow or from the dark contrast of trunks on white. I like the cleanness of these images compared to this shot if taken at another time of year.
