It has no doubt been a very long and a very cold winter here in Indiana. But a recent winter family photography session showcases just how beautiful the winters can be. With Spring just around the corner, we will all be happy to see the beautiful green grass, lush trees, and colorful flowers that come with warmer weather.
But just before we give way to those images, let us stop and appreciate the beauty that our winter brought. The cold of winter allows us to shed excess distractions. It’s slow pace allows us to concentrate on our relationships. Winter is quiet. Winter is full of grace.
But Winter has yet brighter scenes — he boasts
Splendors beyond what gorgeous Summer knows,
Or Autumn with his many fruits, and woods
All flushed with many hues. Come when the rains
Have glazed the snow and clothed the trees with ice,
While the slant sun of February pours
Into the bowers a flood of light. Approach!
The incrusted surface shall upbear thy steps,
And the board arching portals of the grove
Welcome thy entering.
William Cullen Bryant.
