First snowfall


Flathead Lake, MT

At first snowfall, a dialogue exists between the new drifts and the remaining vegetation. It is the calligraphy of change – of one season yielding to another. Each season carries out its respective tasks. To winter falls rest and deep renewal and the penetrating gift of moisture that will eventually usher in spring.

      Thank you, Tom. I always value your perspective. Well I remember those Minnesota winters. You’re right, that’s real purification! We take our doses a little milder here in western Montana.

I am an analog photographer, but I like to dialog. Please comment!
