A Canvas of White
For many, the winter season is a time to hunker down and stay inside. It can be quite nice to sit by a wood stove or fireplace while the snow falls outside. For me, winter is a time to explore and be outdoors. I spend my time climbing mountains, riding my snowboard, and taking in the beauty that mother nature provides. The snow transforms the landscape into something new and otherworldly. The land becomes a canvas of white. Tracks shows us signs of what might have been there before us.
The alpine glow of the mountains and the snow covered trees, make for a very special visual experience. The sky often reflects colored light off the snow creating a variety of different color palettes: pink, purple, blue, and golden among others. The stars shine bright in the crisp cold air of a clear winter night. While other nights it snows and we wake up to a pleasant surprise. For these reasons winter is my favorite season and I encourage you to embrace it and experience it for yourself, if you don’t already.
