Falling Toward Winter

The big statements of the seasons are easy to read: fall’s brief blaze of color, winter’s frosted flashes of beauty. But most of the time the seasons, like our lives, are in transition and full of subtext. Yet we’ll find beauty there, too, in the mixed statements and mid-seasons of our middle passages, if only we take the time to look for it. These photographers have looked for and found the subtext in the transition from autumn to winter.

    Incredible photography, and I LOVED this: “…most of the time the seasons, like our lives, are in transition and full of subtext. Yet we’ll find beauty there, too, in the mixed statements and mid-seasons of our middle passages, if only we take the time to look for it.” That’s deep – and beautiful!
