January can be cruel, and this one is particularly cold and snowy. And yet, my eyes have never seen such beauty. I tried to capture some winter scenes but the limit of the camera does not do this January justice. The beauty is overwhelming and surrounds you, everywhere you look.
Most people only see snow in the city, dirty and dangerous, piled high in their shopping mall parking lots. Gross and unwanted. But on this farm, the snow stays soft white. It adds so much brightness to this world. Snow is not a bane here (not like ice, anyway), and it is welcomed to wash the slate clean and once again bathe the earth in wondrous perfection.
Ok, readers, show me your January appreciation.
