Silence in Snow and Shadow

The morning after our first snowstorm, I ventured out in my 4x4 to the local park. For a time I was the only person in the park. God and me, the trees, the wind, the snow. The wind was blowing forty to fifty miles an hour, whipping up the snow into amazing twisters and rushing clouds. I took out my camera and began shooting. This shot reminds me of the Thomas Merton black and whites. I think it speaks of silence. Thomas Merton said “And because of the peacefulness of the snow, I imagined that my new ideas were breeding within me an interior peace."

The snow is a sign of peace, a peace that can only come from Another.
