Beauty of Winter

“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.”

– Aristotle

“…in winter…you feel the bone structure of the landscape — the loneliness of it; the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.” (Athabasca River Gorge, Jasper National Park, Alberta)

– Andrew Wyeth

“The color of springtime is flowers; the color of winter is in our imagination.”

– Terri Guillemets

    Gorgeous photos – especially the second one, which looks almost other-wordly (in a good way!). Really unique. Fantastic quotes matched up with the photos too 🙂
