These could easily be scenes from the arctic, achingly bright, marked with long shadows colored blue by the shockingly clear skies. Front yard snowdrift moguls could be glacier-draped mountains. A passing dog's paw-prints become those of the mighty wolf. The late-day sun reveals the mysterious world that lies just outside our door.
Leaving work today I glanced out the window and spied a beautifully-sculpted snowdrift glowing in the early evening sun. It's only a foot or two tall but could be any size, even the stature of a mountain, and be no more beautiful. As I approached the parking lot I glanced through a line of trees directly towards the sun. Long shadows on the snow and a spark of brilliance made me stop and haul out the camera once more. There's a major winter storm due 24 hours from now and this is the beautiful calm before.
