Way down under in New Zealand we have been experiencing winter wonderland weather. Even the fast flowing Shotover River in the South Island has been icing up. Now that shows you how amazingly cold it is! Here’s a pic of it when it’s not iced over. Needless to say, the Shotover Jet is not operating because it is too dangerous.
Lucky for me, I’m in the North Island. We’ve still been having our share of hard frosts and I even had frozen pipes – no running water for me yesterday morning.
But, the point I’m taking so long to get to is, that winter with its icy landscapes and frozen sculptures offers rich and varied inspiration for all of us. Poets, writers, artists and even those who would call themselves none of the former, can admire the beauty and marvel at the delicate intricacies that a winter landscape provides.
Get up early, put on lots of warm clothes, go outside and be inspired!
Living in a country where it is spring or summer or autumn? I have added a winter pic below for you.
