I have always loved looking at things differently to better understand my role in not only nature but also the role nature has in my young life. This first ‘gallery’ showcases my perspective on the winter wonderland. Yes, it is rough sometimes and can make you feel blue. But every so often, if you stop for a minute, two minutes, or 20 minutes, you’ll find some treasures.

I enjoy stopping myself when I am on my way somewhere, and take a minute to enjoy the sound of the snow under my boots; the smell of winter; the silence of those around me. It’s a difficult beauty to behold, but once you’ve seen it, it’s hard to go back to your routine.
