Edge of Winter

Edge of Winter

Andrew Wyeth said, “I prefer winter and fall, when you can feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it – the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it – the whole story doesn’t show.”
I suspect Wyeth would have loved Schweitzer’s marsh as it seems to illustrate his quote so well. ¬†Early this day, when the temperature was still below zero, the sweep of silence across the ice was broken only by the bones of dead oaks.
