    Walking into Winter. Winter is one of the four seasons of temperate zones. Almost all English-language calendars, going by astronomy, state that winter begins on the winter solstice, and ends on the spring equinox. Calculated more by the weather, it begins and ends earlier and is the season with the shortest days and the lowest temperatures. Either way, it generally has cold weather and, especially in the higher latitudes, snow and ice.

    Depending on place and culture, start and end of winter can be defined as above or in other ways. Contemporary meteorology takes winter to be the months of June, July, and August in the Southern Hemisphere, and December, January, and February in the Northern Hemisphere. (This sometimes includes March). However, many cultures in Europe and East Asia consider winter to begin in November.

      I'm listening to Isao Tomita's arrangement of Debussy's Arabesque No.1 as I wander through your winter scenes. It's a perfect combination; it draws me to the image, making me wish I could pass into it and experience the moment wholly. Still, doing so vicariously is no small thing. It's an enviable record of an enviable moment. A tip of the hat to you for having the courage to preserve it in black and white, too.

      I really like this shot. For lack of a better word, it feels 'crisp' to me. The contrast is great. Nice photo!

      Makes me feel cold, but the BW treatment seems really bland. I think more contrast would've brought out the snow and the trees a lot more, instead it looks very gray.

      Is that two people, or two shots of the same person walking into winter?? A very surreal shot, and the perspective makes the viewer almost walk into the depths of that chilly forest with them. Great!
