“I love the scent of winter. I love the scent of winter enough to suffer the cold for it.”
― Tiffany Reisz
It’s been a while since I posted, it’s also been a while since I’ve had anything to share. The cold snap finally eased up to the point where a reasonable person could venture out for a while. It’s felt odd, being cooped up and not making photos. So, I finally got back out for a 5 km hike this past Sunday and managed to capture a few images along the way.
What still makes me smile is the splashes of orange from the tenacious beech leaves, which, thus far, have managed to cling to the bare branches and bring a touch of colour to the otherwise stark landscape. They really are the only colour, other than muted tones of various mosses and fungi. Even the sky still hangs heavy and leaden, despite the milder temperatures. By milder I mean slightly below freezing but far more comfortable than the sub -20s we’ve had most of January.

Lovely, just like a painting. Nothing like getting back outside to cure cabin fever.
Good thing too, it’s back to -15 today
I, too, love the scent of winter. Few things are as exciting as that first smell of snow.
The wood smoke hangs in the air, pines rule, and the dog smells like cold air when she comes in.
