Photography of the Day: The Breath of Winter

The Breath of Winter

Winter can be a destructive season but it is strange how we can find beauty in destructive forces. The season’s frigid breath bears down upon us with frosty wrath then leaves us with stunning images. Such is nature, a study in beauty and destruction.

There is a reason certain creatures and plants go dormant in the winter. With no luxuries of climate control, it is best to withdraw into a state of unconsciousness to weather the brunt of nature’s extremes. The ice will eventually melt and fill the ground with replenishing life-giving moisture.
