“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently ? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt, and perhaps it says “go to sleep darlings, till the summer comes again ” Lewis Carroll.
This winter was very cold. Most days were -20°C and I didn’t go out much on photographic excursions. Now Spring is at our doors and before concentrating on flower photography and verdant landscapes I’d like to share these two images I took last December, a few days before Christmas.
It was a peaceful end of afternoon. The only sounds were coming from my snowshoes sinking in the snow and, occasionally, from a little chickadee’s distinct whistle. I could hear, way up above me, tree branches cracking in the wind. I would stop, looking in the distance, observing, listening. Silence, solitude, peace…
Enchantment and gratitude to witness this beautiful end of afternoon. You can see this photo with a better image quality here. Scroll down if you’re interested to read a Behind The Lens story I wrote.
We are now at the first days of Spring and it’s always with a bit of regret that I see the end of winter coming. But at the first notes of the song sparrow I know I’ll be ready for Spring.
A beautiful weekend to all of you !
