Snow is many things: Light, a mirror, a ground cover, a clean canvas, a blank page ready to be written on.
Stillness. Silence. Clarity of air. Nostrils tingle. Breath condenses. Fresh snow, pure and innocent, new snow, white, glistening, soft, powdery snow, feet crunching pristine snow. A pure joy!
Snow makes everything seem quiet and peaceful, especially when the sun casts long, dramatic, cascading shadows like from this bare tree. Shadows sharp and dark, shadows light and fuzzy, light absorbed, light reflected, snow sparkle, ice glare. Snow lights up shade, creates mirrors, provides contrast.
What a wonderful winterworld!
