“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
places to play in and pray in,
where nature may heal and
give strength to body and soul.”

John Muir

Waves of fresh snow created by wind and sun

— winter waves —

A day of snowfall without wind is followed by a some blistery winds. Yesterday the lake ice was covered with a cushion of soft snow, even, untouched. Today the wind starts to form ripples, not unlike waves.

Standing in the middle of the lake, fantastic.

I cannot stay long and play or pray, as John Muir suggests, but I take a picture with me and return to my warm shelter.
