I suppose we are long overdue for an actual winter here in NM. But, here it is! There has been snow on the ground since Christmas and we haven't had the sunny days that we are used to. Just some moments of sunshine that falsely lulls us into thinking that everything will be as it usually is. This image was a brief moment in time when the sun peeked out to show me its stuff-it also belies the fact that there is still much snow on the ground-this spot just happened to not have it. I took full advantage of it! The first image has gone through some photo editing, the second is the same image completely unaltered.
Don't forget to slow down to stop and enjoy the beauty that is around you. If you say there is none or very little, I'll say that you haven't slowed down. Stop the busy. Take in some mindful, deep breaths. Smell the air. Feel it on your skin. See the sky and the clouds. Don't forget to go out and watch the colors of the sky as the sun sets. For life is too short to let all this beauty pass you by!
