I really love this photo challenge! I love winter because I think it allows us to see everything in a new way. Snow provides a clean, white covering on everything. It makes things appear new, pure, untouched, almost perfect. I was really disappointed with the amount of snow we got this year. I managed to get a few photos while we had snow, but had been hoping to get some better photos when the snow came back, and it never did. I had really wanted to get some macro photos on a nice camera but realized I would have to settle with these photos taken with my phone when the snow did not return.
