Most people hate it. It’s cold, wet, slippery, dark, dead. They prefer spring and summer which are hopeful, bright, and warm. I love winter. Yes, it’s dark, wet, slippery, and cold. But it also has the crystal clear beauty of ice and snow. The air is so fresh and clean and brand new, as it has never been breathed in and out by any living being before. And even if there’s no snow, the bleak and lonely silence of winter is also the sound of a new beginning. Somehow, with all distractions of colour removed, in winter it is easier to see and feel the essentials of life. So, here’s to winter, a collection of photographs of winter landscapes. Enjoy!
