After an April snowstorm trudged to the east from Colorado, I discovered a frosted paradise. The stormy skies had been mottled gray, moody, somber, the bellies of clouds filled with snow. But it scrubbed the air, refreshed the skies, made it clearer, bluer, crisp. I found my favorite muse and had to share some of my favorite photographs.
As I walked in the yard, diamonds dazzled on the snowy surface.
I approached my muse, knowing the light would soon become too bright and wash out the contrast. It wouldn’t take long before the intense, mile-high, April sun would melt the snow.
I quickly captured the mirrored pond, reflecting the surrounding beauty.
Within the frame, whipped cream topped every surface.
Sometimes, the views are so breath-taking, a photograph isn’t enough.
I had to breathe it in. Take in the moment. Memorize the feeling. I immersed myself before it slipped away.
Here’s a video of that magical day.
Are you ready for spring? Have you been getting some fresh air? Are you a winter or a summer person?
Pin for later!
