Dancing in the sunlight

Dancing in the sunlight_Staats8559I love the simplicity of our winter landscape.  The white snow clears the distractions and leaves a clean canvas.  As I was out for a walk one day I found these plants above the snow.  With the sun behind them and their shadows splayed out over the white snow, it appeared they were dancing with their shadows.  Similar to a water surface reflection, however the white brings everything down to the basics.  Just like in the cold of winter, we look to the basics of warmth, protection from the cold and wind, and the optimism that spring will be on our doorstep eventually.
