Winter Be Gone

I am a Wisconsin girl, Green Bay specifically (Go Pack!). One would think with these credentials a winter in New Jersey wouldn't be a second thought. If you are thinking this you would be 100% wrong!  I don't know when this shift came to me, when winter became a burden, but it has and I am done. 

So yesterday, when we went out for our first scheduled photo walk, it was not the spring day we were looking forward to, but  the aftermath of 10" of snow that dumped on our neighborhood last week.

Good for the cross country ski enthusiasts, but not so much for the rest of us. However, I did discover that while shooting in the snow has certain challenges, the outcomes can be rather fulfilling.

Rather than harumphing and complaining about the snow, and the cold, today I will celebrate. I will celebrate seasons and variety. I will celebrate the joy of new discoveries. And hopefully within the next week or so I'll be able to celebrate spring.
