Winter's Limitless Beauty

Winter is wet and cold, and most people don’t like being wet and cold, but winter is also very beautiful. The winter months have a limitless beauty about them when you actually take the time to look around. When you are walking around outside around Christmas time, for example, looking at all the houses on your block that have Christmas lights up or you go to a Christmas carnival or Market. Or my favorite as a kid the Fantasy of Lights in our town at the big park that we have. It’s the best to see the lights when it is snowing out with hot cocoa from your local coffee shop. I remember getting all bundled up and going out to the Fantasy of Lights with a group of people with hot cocoa in hand getting pictures in front of our favorite lights.

That is not all that winter has to offer, though. What about the first snowfall, at night or even during the day? Watching the snow fall down during the first snow fall is so pretty, even if it does bring with the ice that nobody really likes. But the look of the first ice that covers the lake is pretty with the sun shining down on it don’t you think? Or the ways the trees look with the snow on them and sun or moon shining down on them. Now if you live somewhere, with mountains the limitless beauty that, is there during the winter is something completely different. However, I can’t comment on that because I haven’t actually seen it firsthand but the pictures that I see on the internet look nice.

Seeing the snow glistening on the trees in the dark of night with the moon shining down on them is limitlessly beautiful or at least that is what I think. Seeing the snow glistening at all brings about a limitless amount of freshness to the world and gives you a different mindset. A fresher mindset in my opinion even though I don’t like going out in the snow it is still pretty to me. With the snow being cold and white, it brings about a fresh quality. Which makes most people happy and gives them a limitless new fresh look out onto the world. I think that is why we have New Year’s right after Christmas. There is still snow on the ground and most of the time it is fresh, to give people a fresh limitless outlook on the year to come.

The snow that covers the trees or the rocks depending on where you are living is pretty isn’t it? That is where the limitless beauty of winter comes from according to all the pictures you see on the internet that is. It looks nice, it makes you open your eyes a bit wider and actually see what is around you when you are out in the snow. Have you ever went outside when it’s snowing and tried to catch snowflakes on your tongue? I have done that, and it is fun, but the best part about doing that is the snowflakes that get into your lashes, which is where the beauty of it comes from. What about the ice sculptures that, are made during the winter months those are beautiful in themselves.

The limitless beauty of winter helps you clear your mind of all the stuff that boggles it down when you look at the pretty snow. It’s fresh and new and looks so pretty that you can’t help but just stare at it for a limitless amount of time. Especially at night that is when the snow glitters when the moon or a light hits it. It makes people happy to see the fresh snow, even if they don’t like what the snow represents, the fact that it is white and powdery gives the illusion that limitless new things are on the horizon for the holidays that is.

Snow on trees or on the lakes or grass if it’s a heavy snow, makes everything look so much more beautiful and that is where the limitlessness of the snow's beauty comes in. The definition of snow is, precipitation in the form of ice white crystals formed directly from the water vapor of the air at a temperature of less than 32°F (0°C). Which is another reason why winter is limitlessly beautiful because when you think about it the snow is actual crystals? Who doesn’t think that Crystals are beautiful? I do and that is why I find winter to be limitless beautiful even if I don’t like the ice that comes along with the snow.

Winter is beautiful because the snow is white, and white is a sign of purity, which means the snow is a sign of purity and new things to come.

      Sunshine on the snow, crisp days with good, long walks (as long as I'm wrapped up well) are some of the best things in the world.

      I used to experience a reasonable amount of snow every winter in the south-east of England but here in the south-west it doesn't arrive so often as the climate is warmer (and often wetter!). However, sunshine rules at the moment!

      Right now we have pretty snow, when you look at the grass but in driveways it is not so pretty with the ice underneath.

      thanks for the comment annart

      My most beautiful picture of snow is heaps of it on a moonlight night on a country road where there is no street light. I also love to see thick icicles hanging from trees and rooftops. I like all the images you describe. I love it all --especially in pictures only because the cold is missing.
