After the Storm

 

                                       ... after the storm ... pine boughs bend beneath the weight of winter

                   ... two ruffed grouse rest in blue silence

  3. Your storms certainly leave a more beautiful calling card than our storms. Both photo and the words are lovely -- the very essence of winter.

  6. Ruffled yet unruffled....at winter's mercy pine boughs humbled gently. And, grouse sync well with the moment...quitetude. A facet of life!!
