One Response to “The Color of Winter”

  1. Susan Jones Says:

    Thank you for those wonderful winter images. They made me think of Minnesota winters in a new light–they are an antidote to winter blues. And “light” is what creates the uncommon beauty in all of the pictures–even in the wood blocks and and the darker images like the Henry Holmstrom’s “Zero Morning.” I’m going to sign off now and watch replay the slideshow. Thank you again.
