A Winter Walk in the Park

Went for a walk in Franklin Park this morning to enjoy the big snowfall we got yesterday and last night. It was just lovely. So quiet and magical. There's just something about snow, especially in the morning, when it has so quickly transformed the world so dramatically in such a short time. As human beings we can't do anything on such a scale - not like Mother Nature can! It seems spiritual somehow to me and just fascinating. I hate to have to drive in it and I know it can cause a lot of problems in other ways, but when you can get out and walk in it in the morning and just enjoy the serenity of it and be alone with nature and your thoughts - there's something so beautiful about it, something soothing and calming. Here are a few of my pictures of the walk that you can enjoy without going into the cold!
