Frosty Island

I had waited a few months to return to the sea, but a brisk icy wind kept our walk to just a few minutes. It was enough time for me to visit a frosty island in my mind. The adventure lingered long after my return to the heated cab of the truck.

Ice Coated Sprills

The ice formed a thick coating, encasing the evergreen sprills in a way I had never seen them before. If I had not been looking for unique pictures to take, I could have missed them. I am grateful to have a different view of what I often see.

Winter Lace

The ice coated branches of the severely bent white birch looked like sparkling lace in the bright sun. I noted the beauty along with the destruction from the recent storm. It reminded me that there is beauty everywhere in life if we choose to see it.

Off on an Adventure

I wonder when I see human tracks in the snow what kind of an adventure they will have on their journey into Nature. What will they see? What will they feel? Will they come back to the world changed by their experience?

Frozen Whites

I could see a magnificent scene through the trees as I approached the Lupine Field. I smiled, breathed in the crisp cold air, and continued on to my destination, filled with gratitude.
