Look at the surface, and winter is cold, harsh, and unforgiving. However, if you look at the little things: the
icicles hanging off a tree branch, snow slightly dusted on the last flower that refuses to wilt, its true,
serene beauty comes through.
One of many shots trying to capture the ice crystals on the fir needles.
One of many reflection photographs. Just like melted water, frozen water also reflects.
These autumn leaves were in a pond that was slightly frozen. The colors, patterns and snow crystals
would make anyone grab their camera.
The fresh white snow contrasts greatly to the vibrant chrysanthemums (also called mums). The snow
crystals can be seen clinging the colorful flower.
The last petunia clinging to life from the first snow of the season. The snow has lightly dusted the
flower, accentuating it's color.
Shapes, colors, stark and bright. Those are the photos that are shot up through branches.
The orange from the zinnias are a great canvas for the freshly fallen snow. Once more, contrast brings
the beauty of the snow to light.
