Tiny spots of color permeating the bleak winter snowscape.
Christmas Eve is here, and Christmas is soon to follow. It’s quickly on to New Years and then we plunge into the cold and bleak desolation of true winter. I know the dreary monotony that a snowbound January and February can bring, so it’s important to take delight in the little things like a warm home, good company, or a stiff drink if those are lacking. Once the pristine white of fresh snow bleeds into a dirty urban grey I look for any sort of a break in that barren landscape. These tiny berries, hanging on long past their season, caught my eye as their color radiated out from beneath their blanket of snow. To see the delicate ice crystals crumbling and dripping amid this fragile picture is to freeze a melting moment that would otherwise not last.
