Snow and frost coats the surface of this forest, creating a magical winter wonderland. The trees stand dark and bold, directing our eyes upward and lengthening the frame. At the sky, the branches join fingers to form an arch. A protected space basked in soft blue light lies below. This photo is full of quiet wonder and lightness – beauty in white.
There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the still ecstasy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig, is clad with radiance.
