Winter is…

Posted by Yacoob on June 27, 2007

              

     The bareness of trees               Howling winds
         

                         

     Winter sun, inviting the contrast of bitter cold, but shining warmth
       

      

                   The pitter patter of raindrops
        

      

       Or a collective gush…            when you’re caught in the rain
              

      

The droplets of water, adorning each branch like precious, pure fingertips
       

 

And the marvel of how such a powerful downpour can leave such delicate results


(Winter is also a time when many people can barely survive the cold. So with that in mind, please also read the post:
Chill)

    thanx people – i loved this set as well :)

    it’s a shame i couldn’t put the full size pix up – these are reduced and so they lose a bit of the quality :(
