My first thought when I looked at this image was the song: In the Bleak Midwinter.
Lyrics by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894) Music by Gustav Holst (1874-1934)
Lots of great recordings of this song on Youtube -
I love the instrumental by Loreena McKennit
Here is a LINK to James Taylor's version.
It's so easy to get caught up in the dreariness of this time of year. Here is the same area shot in the photo above - during a brighter time of year. (I need to practice more on capturing the blue sky on sunny days).
I did get the vividness in the greens (perhaps that is because I am in the blahs of winter right now). My thought to remember for today -
Jesus is the Light of the World
Even on dark dismal days - His Light shines bright within each one of us.
Spread some Sonshine today - there is a great need this time of year!
