Midwinter light falls hard on snow, weeks old…
On crust and glaze and rotted bank,
On the ache of empty fields..
Bristles of alder, oak and pine
Stab blackly upward,
Through the dead white skin of January..
Why should this, only this, whisper
I am what really is
? A.Ikeler

North of the city winter comes as early as November…by January the landscape both in the city and the north is transformed…the silence is deafening….the beauty is mind blowing…this is my country anywhere from five to all the months of the year depending on where you live…this image is of fields in the countryside, but by midwinter it could be my back garden…looking out of my windows I am always fascinated to see fresh tracks in the snow, starting and ending nowhere…. an indicator that someone was there, but who it was, and how they got there remains a mystery…Toronto, Ontario, Canada…
