Winter Sun

This is another image from yesterday’s incredible sunrise. You can just see the beginnings of a sun dog off to the left.

Still in awe.

We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.

This morning in Dufferin …

I’ve seldom witnessed such a sunrise. I was sitting in my studio, which faces east, writing a blurb when I looked out the window and saw the first shades of dawn. Beautiful, but ignored it. Too cold.

However, moments later the magic started to happen and I couldn’t ignore it any longer. I threw on my coat and boots, grabbed my mittens and spent about a half hour wandering along my regular south east viewpoint in the bitter cold capturing 271 sunrise moments. My fingers nearly froze off.

The silence was winter crisp. Not a sound except for the occasional chirping of a frigid bird.
Purely magical.

It was a stunning experience to watch this sun dog manifest.
I’ve only chosen to post four images here, but you can be assured there are more to follow.

Winter Pastorale

Winter Pastorale

It thrills my heart to watch the day unfold in such an array of soft pastoral colour.

Every season has its beauty. When we live in the moment with Mother Nature she has the power to nurture our souls and help us rise to whatever challenges we may be facing. And sometimes she simply loves to remind us how much is ours to enjoy if we will just stop long enough to take it in.

During this busy time of celebration may you find time to commune quietly with the beauty of nature.

Seasons Greetings!

Dorothy
