Winter blues

Instead of resisting winter, I'm embracing it's quiet beauty. At least for today.

"Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues."
- Robert Francis

it's remarkable, your photos look like paintings!

...and in regards to your long winter post, you should come visit San Diego! some friends from Montreal just came out here and they loved a break from the bitter cold.
