Winter Photos



-ALL PHOTOS AND EDITS BY RUTH RADER-


-ME, LOOKING VERY TIRED, ON THE ROAD, WITH SNOW BEHIND ME,
IN THE FIELD-

 

-I WONDER WHY A TRUCK ALWAYS SEEMS TO LEAD THE WAY UP THE
THE HIGHEST HILLS?-


-WHERE DO THE OLD FENCE POSTS REALLY GO...WHEN THEY'RE ALL
LINED UP IN THE SNOW?-


-WINTER SOMETIMES MOVES LIKE A SERPENT THROUGH THE SNOW-


-AND THE SUN SETS, LIKE A POOL OF ROSE GOLD,  INTO THE COLD
LANDSCAPE-


-SOMETIMES A CHAIN OF STONES, NATURALLY LINKS ONE END OF
WINTER, TO THE OTHER END OF THE SEASON-


-BUT NO MATTER HOW BRIGHT THE SUN SHINES IN WINTER, IT WILL
NEVER MELT AWAY THE COLD-


 -IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER, THE HEAVY SNOW SEEMS TO DRIVE THE
TREES INTO THE WHITE TERRAIN-


-OF COURSE, THE QUESTION IS: WERE THEY WALKING UP?  WERE
THEY WALKING DOWN? OR WERE THEY WALKING UP AND DOWN?-


-IT LOOKS ALMOST LIKE THE SURFACE OF ANOTHER PLANET-


-TIRED ME, WITH RED EYES, SITTING ON THE BUS-


-AND INTO MORE SNOW...WE GO!-


-"THAT'S  ALL  FOR  NOW, FOLKS!"-

Love your pictures Ruthie. You've captured a lot of beauty amidst the bullshit.
