Winter on the Water

Even in the winter, we like to get out of the house and go for a hike.  Last weekend we bundled up and hit the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge at Tinicum.  The lake was frozen and gave a beautiful perspective to the setting.

  1. I agree that there is a different beauty in the winter.

    Just yesterday I was taking photos of the little signs of life that are such a treasure to New Englanders in the winter. But I could not do justice to the winter sunset with that golden orange light skimming the trees and pink and purple sky bidding “goodnight”.

    • There is beauty around every corner if you have you eyes open. I am glad to hear you are enjoying your “corner” this winter too. Thanks for checking out my post!

    • Not this time. I saw them last year, and it was amazing! I was talking to someone on the trail who thought they had moved their nest this year to further in the woods.
