There's something really beautiful about the bare, stark landscape of Winter. I don't think I ever noticed it when I lived in the Midwest. It's after I have lived in the tropical climate of Florida that I began to notice the raw beauty. Green is a very refreshing color to look at everyday outside but its comforting to see browns and whites in a mid western winter.
While visiting our family in Kansas the kids and I ventured to a nearby park just a few blocks away from my parent's house. It was cold but not unbearable and it was nice to stretch our legs and breathe the crisp, fresh air. The scenery caught my eye at the park and I was glad that I had brought my camera.
