Winter Trees III

For a photographer, winter is wonderful for the angular light and the open candor of the forest and the winter trees. All five images in this folio were photographed in a single day following a heavy winter storm in December of 2008. A two week stretch of cold, arctic air covered our normally balmy corner of the Pacific Northwest, followed by a typical, wet southwester. Over a foot of snow fell in Anacortes! This is not a particularly unique weather event for so many regions, but here, where I live, it was almost unheard of.

Walking through the white crunch underfoot took me back to my childhood growing up in Wyoming. The hush of the winter blanket makes an intimate landscape that is immediate, silent, still. In the pause between storms, there was a sense of waiting — for a thaw? For spring? I'm not sure, but it was tangible, breathable, pervasive. What a joy!
