Tag: ending winter


By Nick Wilder


I have mixed feelings about winter. Most days are gray and cold. The sunsets early and we spend many of our days indoors. However, it’s fun to play in the snow. Clear days have beautiful low light and trees show off their branches. You notice the days getting longer in February and by March there are small signs of spring. I looked back through my past few years of winter photos and selected some which capture my impression of the season.
