Like every snowflake, many images are unique yet much like many others. Snow and photography are both repetitive, and with each accumulation can become a burden. With snow, accumulation also can create a distinctive sense of serenity. Winter solitude can be a blessing, and one that is needed again every year. We hope that this single image, unique and yet seen before, can bring a moment of repose during this busy time of the year.
Best wishes for a peaceful holiday. We’ll return to our regular schedule on January 6.
