I went on a stroll (actually more of a slog) through the woods and hills by our house today. My plan was to shoot winter scenes, but then I noticed the details. I found these pockets in the snow where the weeds and stems were peeking through and were framed by the ice around them. Very beautiful, and I am assuming fragile and fleeting.
Then there were the bursts of color that stood out in the stark monochrome of the winter landscape. The bittersweet and the sumac still hold their color against the ice and snow.
