Best face forward

Winter has two faces. One is weary and monotonous. The other is vibrant and very colorful. This photograph of the latter was taken on a frigid afternoon as the sun slowly settled toward the western horizon. Trees beyond the stone bridge reflected the ruddy hues of the sunlight on the water of the creek, which picked up some blue of the sky overhead, creating a shifting palette of colors.

A bit of Orton processing softens the edges in this image. I much prefer this face of winter.

35 days until spring.
