On a blustery, snowy, Midwestern afternoon when spring seemed so very far away, I bundled up and bravely stepped outside to take a brisk walk. I quickly found this wonderful nature image that changed my perspective on the harshness of the winter season. I went back inside, grabbed my camera and discovered that nature's beauty was everywhere on that frosty and bleak mid-winter afternoon. I suddenly found myself more at peace with the season.
