While most abhor winter and the cold that accompanies it, I've always been kind of a "nut" about it. I love the way the snow transforms a landscape with the curves of drifting snow, the way snow sparkles in the sun and allows blue shadows that accentuate and contrast light. I love the quiet in a drifted woods, the softly falling flakes, and the squeak of steps through the depths.

How well I remember the anticipation of "no school" and the fun I had sledding, making snowmen and snow forts, snowball fights, etc..

Both as a child and as an adult, I loved skiing, skating, tobogganing and of course, sleigh rides. Winter brings the scent of balsam and evergreens, the aroma of hot chocolate, and of course the excitement of Santa's visit. And, when Santa had gone, the new sleds and skates were ready for fun.

In other words, I just love winter!

    Incredible photo. I have to say, I love all seasons when they're here. I have to agree about winter; though I don't love it most of the seasons, it has its magic. I grew up in the country and loved the stillness of a snowy day. There is something very special about the sound, whether imagined or real, of snow falling and the air. Truly magical.
