Maine winters require resilience, but they give so much beauty in return.
One of the things I love best about the winter here in Maine is the light, how gentle it makes everything that it touches. A pink glow in the morning, and this soft gold in the afternoon.
I never paid so much attention to light before my 365 project two years ago. It's now to the point that I rarely see pictures at all anymore unless the light has a certain quality (which is, interestingly, why I think my favorite work was made in the winter).
