Quiet Reflections of the Changing Season

Quiet Reflections of the Changing Season

Bare trees and matted grasses await their snow cover in the Minnesota River valley. It’s nice to get out of the city and see that there are quiet places waiting contemplation. This time of year always draws me out to the woods to watch the changes. The holiday season rushes in and activity picks up to a fevered pitch; everyone racing about shopping and going to parties. It’s easy to miss this quiet transition.

The man is forecasting snow this weekend so check back and see the most Northern metropolis venture into it’s wonderland. It’s the time, as Garrison Keillor says, when nature makes a concerted effort to kill you.

    Really nice symmetry with the bursting cloudscape and stick-figure tree reflected in the stream. I also like the rhythm of the bright upper left and the dark lower right.

    Mr. Keillor, Minnesotan that he is, overlooks the tropical risks of hurricanes, various jungle and swamp diseases, and snakes. Danger lurks at every latitude.
