Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

Beyond

 

It’s amazing how quickly one’s body adjusts to warm climates and how slowly one acclimates to cold. In Vietnam last year, I missed winter. I should clarify, Hanoi has winter. It gets to about 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit, not fatal to a midwesterner but the chilly humidity sits in your bones. Last year, we had no hot water in which to shower and most houses are poorly heated. What I missed was the drastic change of seasons Minnesota offered. Now, as I am struggling to re-acclimate to winter, I realize what I missed: the clarity of the light in the afternoons, just as the sun begins to sink around 3 or 4:00 pm. The light becomes rose-gold and the trees cast long indigo shadows across the snow.

In this photograph, the maple tree frames the illuminated branches in the distance, which are more interesting than the tree itself.
