Winter Silence

First, let me say, "Happy birthday, Dad!"

Fall is my favorite season, but I have an appreciation for what each season brings.  Even winter.  The silence, the snow, the homemade stews and cornbread all come together as a wonderful sense of comfort from the sun's heat and the busy rush of a harvest. 

I snapped this photo in the patch of woods behind my home.  Simply standing in the light snow that'd fallen and the quiet of the environment so rich that the only sound was my breath is what I love about winter.  There's no other season that gives our ears such a break.

The earth is asleep but there's plenty to still enjoy about the outdoors.  What's your favorite outdoor activity in the winter?
