Winter Bliss

With our chilly winters and unreliable weather here in Southeastern MN and Southwestern WI, I still am proud to call this place my home.  I have been known to call my mother as the burning, frigid air passes through my nostrils while I am cleaning off my car after a fresh snow and ask, “Why would you raise a family in this state with this kind of weather?”   Truth be told, I love the four seasons.  I love the angle of the light in Winter, the green tip of the Tulip as at it pushes through the winter residue in Spring, the green, green, greenness of this land in Summer, and the beautiful array of color that Autumn can bring.  All seasons inspire me and continue to keep me here.

Sometimes the cold can force the body indoors and push you towards hibernation, just ask any Grizzly bear in the Northern Hemisphere.  However, Dan and I will still venture out and capture what we see in this amazing state.  Winter can add a spotlight to an item that is otherwise obscured in the thickness of the forest.  Please enjoy the images from this unseasonably warm Winter day as we traveled through rolling hills and farmland into the area of Augusta, WI.

    I love the seasons… change for me is just as important as the ebb and flow of the subjects I shoot… glad to see I am not the only crazy one. Your pics bring back some of that chill… not really fond of ice scraping at 6am and 10 degrees 🙂

    I love the unseasonably warm days in Winter; they are far and few in between though. I remember the day well and what you have captured brings me right back there. Wonderful photos sweetie pie.

  3. Why does anyone live anywhere? For better or worse this is a great world if we allow it to be so. Great captures and I like the humor in the emergency phone numbers. Cheers!
