"Winter strips her soul bare . . .

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 2 February 2021 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

. . . to welcome the newborn cries of spring."

- Quote by Angie Weiland-Crosby

Chicago finally got its first measurable snowfall of the season (2020-2021) on January 26, 2021. Last winter season (2019-2020), our first measurable snowfall was on October 31, 2019 and no other snowfall during that winter season matched that amount.

I really like this path, which slips into the forest and lets us imagine what we could find by following it.

Pure snow is always a great sight. It calms me down and calls me out. After the outdoors, you can then do a little snow work.

Very nice. There is always something really attractive about snow on barren trees.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

that path back into the woods is intriguing - I had to go back a page to compare the two scenes. I remembered the hint of a path behind the right most tree in yesterday's shot so I wanted to compare. I think I like today's better... both more pristine without the benches, and more mysterious with the path into the woods.
