The weather buzzword this December is “polar vortex.”  An Arctic air mass has drifted further south than normal, sending temperatures in  the American Midwest plummeting into a deep freeze.  Yet in a landscape frosted white,  the usual Michigan suspects of woods, water, and blue sky  provide grist for the photographer’s mill.  And we know that beneath the snow lies a promise of spring’s return.

 

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
