Snow lines

If autumn is when God’s palette is worked to the limit, then winter is when the whole scene is painted over in white and begun again.

This photo was taken after a windy snowstorm did some overnight repainting. The rising sun cast long shadow lines over the scene. The exotic location? A drainage basin in front of the suburban subdivision where I live.

A little repainting can make any location look magical.

These last two photos have almost made me wish for snow.

Almost...

I love this image and your story about God painting the world white in winter so that He can begin another beautiful masterpiece to be given to us in the spring.

Simply amazing and humbling, the beauty of the everyday. If we have the right eyes for seeing it. You do!
