Frosting The Ford ...

"The color of springtime is in the flowers,
The color of winter is in the imagination."
                            ~ Ward Elliot Hour

Winter frosts the ford of the Jordan Creek,
one of my very favorite places to be and to 
photograph, at Trexler Nature Preserve,
Schnecksville, Pennsylvania.  

This spot exudes such beauty in every season,
and when I'm there it echoes to me
Psalm 46:10 ~ "Be still, and know that 
I am God."

I shot this frosty scene near sunset soon after the historic January Blizzard of 2016. In a winter shorn of snow until the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow on nearby Allentown in a 24 hour period.

Frosting The Jordan ...

"In the depth of winter,

I finally learned that

within me there lay an

invincible summer." 

                    ~ Albert Camus

                                  ~ 1913-1960 

Winter frosts the Jordan Creek into crystalized beauty
as it winds it's way on a January day 
through Wehr's Covered Bridge Park,
Orefield, Pennsylvania.
