Winter quiet are those times when the air is so still that no sound, no vibrations reach my ears. What little wind there may be cannot muster even the faintest of whispers. The air feels heavy, almost a physical pressure, as if someone were pressing the palms of their hands flat against my ears.
I would not be exaggerating to say the volume of my inner thoughts is turned down too.
It was like that this day. It is a quiet that seduces you, subsumes you into nature, so as for it to be difficult to imagine you are in a big city.
It begins to snow again a bit more heavily by the time I reach this spot, the edge of the pond. One's sense of space, of distance, flattens out in the low contrast light of a snow storm. Edges become indistinct. The landscape is defined by patches of light and dark, variations of tone that are barely seen against the fuzzy soft-white of falling snow. Even without the sun, some flakes catch bits of light as they flitter about on swirling streams of wind, and sparkle here and there like little white fireflies.
"What magic," I think.

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself. Ruth Stout

A winter full moon night in Banff national park after a severe snow storm. There are still open water sections on the lake and the ice is thin. This is my first perspective blending artwork, so don't be surprised about the size of the moon, cause it is what your eyes can see instead of what the camera can capture.
This is from winter 2014 in the southern part of Oregon. Hadn't meant to post this tonight, but accidentally uploaded in Public, so gonna go with it. At home until Monday, so will try to catch up while home.
This is the way we attempt to stay sane during Minnesota’s long winter. We light things up so that we are moderately fooled into thinking that it is summer. It might partially work but when the temperature is below zero you body still gets the hint that it is winter.
This is Landmark Center and the other interesting building surrounding Rice Park in St Paul, MN. If you have not been there during the winter, it is worth the trip.

Sunset at the Schauinsland mountain, Black Forest.
First rays of the sinking sun stripe the beautiful scenery.
The upper Rhine valley is covered with a cloud layer (Inversion, no pollution) and in the distance the Vosges mountains, Alsace/France are visible. The end of a marvellous day out in Nature.
By the way, it is not so cold there as it may look for you.
The Black Forest is a forested mountain range.
Beginnender Sonnenuntergang auf dem Schauinsland im
Schwarzwald. Erste Strahlen der untergehenden Sonne tauchen
die Landschaft in ein schönes Licht.
Die Rheinebene liegt versteckt unter einer Inversionsschicht,
und in der Ferne verschwinden langsam die Konturen der Vogesen.
Ein schöner Tag draußen in der Natur neigt sich dem Ende zu.
