A Snowy Woodland Brook Journey

 

A winter walk along a snow covered path through the woods has a special quality of stillness. It's a quiet made of your own muffled, almost soundless footfalls and those of the creatures who made those tiny tracks. You sense that they are hiding with held breath just out of sight under the pillowed snow beside the frozen water in the stream. Your frozen breath hangs in the air, as if afraid to fall and shatter the peace. The lowering sun makes the shadows lengthen silently through the woods, across the brook between the trees.

  2. I'm a big fan of partial/small landscapes. The snow is wonderful, and as I was reading your story I could feel & hear the snow crunching, lightly & gracefully as if I were walking there myself! I must say that the shadows add a special dimension ~ wouldn't be the same without them! +Ellie Kennard
