This is from a winter shoot at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum with my friend, Jacqueline. The Arboretum was quiet and the air was clear. It felt good just to breathe. One of the things that I love about winter, in addition to the beautiful low light, is the quiet resolve of things once living. Plants and trees that hold on to their leaves or petals in spite of the cold and the wind. I feel there's something I can learn from their resolve.
