icy tranquility

"The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely, or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature." -Anne Frank

I am in total awe; the beauty of nature is divine. So simple, so perfect, so refreshing. There is truly nothing a person can create which could be as beautiful, besides another human being. After a night of heavy snowfall the forest was breathtaking. Trees stood massive and white, their branches clustered with snow, their trunks laced with intricate designs of ice. The photos I took hardly do the actual beauty justice. The absolute tranquility which was wrapped around the woods made it feel as though time was standing still. There was not the slightest breath of wind, and not a single bird sang. Only us people and dogs, trudging through the pristine white, made a sound. I am including more photos of trees above; I hope you enjoy them! I felt so blessed to be able to take this walk, and to have this magnificent forest right at outside our door. Nature is so precious!
