I am not a fan of winter.  I do, however, love walking in the woods in the snowfall.  There is a silence the falling snow brings to the forest that is simply unearthly, a stillness like life itself is frozen.  The last snowfall of the season, snow that kisses the waking buds and then is gone like a waking dream.

All of these images were created with the Lensbaby Velvet 85, as were all the images in these blog posts.
