Finalist - Nature and Landscape - October 2015
We have had a record snowfall this past winter and although everyone prayed for a slow melt, spring seems to have moved on to other parts of the country, leaving us to only dream of buds and crocuses.
I still find that there are moments of nature's beauty while waiting for her to make up her mind.
