Winter's Shadow

Winter's Finale

 

Goodbye now to Winter's grip, your lease now severely weakened as chinook melting begins once again in Southern Alberta. Another seasonal cycle begins in earnest, followed soon by rebirth. A flood of memories remain. You've been like "photographic comfort food", providing gorgeous elegant white backdrops for enhancing and focusing specifically on muted colours while outlining defining shapes. Drifted compositions and glowing light never cease to amaze. Never without a chilly struggle though, to rekindle and challenge motivation while seeking creature warmth. All in all it's been a mutual benefit, the photographic soul just that much more resilient, and nurtured. Goodbye Sweet Winter!
