Voir le dégel de la glace

See the Thaw from the Ice - Voir le dégel de la glace....

Stand in the cold - but look at the warm;
Within the chill of a cold crowd around you,
Look beyond and look above to see;

In the midst of frozen talk and uncaring eyes
Smile with your heart and know there can be peace
If you stand in the cold but look for the warm;
Your heart will thank you, your spirit will sing;

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

Looks like spring is on the way, but this is probably the beginning of winter | Similar colors, either way.

This documents your standing in the cold but looking for the warmth ... and you found it ... a striking shot, Denny.

The ice has great nuanced character and I love the trees to top off the scene, plus the Jump words :)

The color and sheen of the ice looks like satin.... that is a pretty scene with the trees. All seems to be in harmony. I enjoyed your verse also, very nice.
