Winter Glow and Soft New Life Photography

The winter glow is like magic to my soul. I find myself unable to look away. The chill buries itself in my bones, but it’s not unwelcome. Gone are the long overheated days of summer with its unrelenting sun rays and sweat on my brow. These are the days of hibernation, of introspection, of root growth.

Winter (and autumn) are my favorite seasons, which is one of the many reasons I live here in Alaska. Where I live, it’s about six months long and I love it.

I also got a precious little bundle of gifts when my one of my rabbits had a litter of kits the last day of the year. I’m in love with these little guys. I hope you guys enjoy the photos.

No filters. Just gorgeous sunset reflection and dark clouds overhead.
Sunset ice glow.
You know it’s cold when there’s sea ice.
I like how the dark clouds overhead made the water look almost black.
Sunset ice glow.

  2. The glimpses of life and nature you bring are precious beautiful! I love autumn and winter too for how I feel the permission to stay inward with myself, while taking in the beauty available around me.

  5. Your photos of the sea and sky are amazingly lovely. Winter is my least favorite time of year so I guess it is a good thing I don’t live in Alaska.

    • Thanks Ali! Spring (in Alaska) is my least favorite. Because it’s not pretty and blooming like in the lower 48. Here it’s just mud. But I also don’t much care for summer because of all the sun and heat. But I’m glad you enjoyed the photos!
