Week 6: Quiet Calm
The world begins to emerge from its wintry blanket quietly, calmly.
Subtle cues emerge with very little notice.
For this week's photo assignment we will focus on
the quiet calm of the world re-energize around us.
I looked hard for signs of impending Spring this week but I was pretty hard pressed to find anything at all. With snow banks six feet high and temperatures in the minus double digit range; the robins are not emerging, the trees are not budding and the tulips are not poking their heads through the ground.
We continue to be in the depths of winter here without any sign of it letting up anytime soon. We had more snow fall this week, quite a bit of it actually. So, what could I possibly take a photo of that would fit this week's topic?
Then I realized that there is ONE change that has been happening slowly over the last few weeks. The sun is now up when I go to work in the morning and it has not set when I leave work at 5 p.m. That was not the case in early January. It's nice to have longer days, it lifts your spirits and gives you the hope of Spring.
This photo was taken as I was leaving work one day this week BEFORE the big snow storm dumped another foot of the white stuff on the ground. As you can see, the sun is still above the horizon. *smile*
