Winter DOES try to make up for the brutal winds and bone-chilling temperatures with sights such as this one. So, thank you Mother Nature for this beautiful scene. And as much as I dislike winter, I will say that I appreciate the warm weather even more by having the drastic differences between summer and winter. I think if we had beautiful, warm weather year-round, we may take it for granted. Standing out in gale force winds with your tears freezing on your cheeks and your fingers starting to burn inside your gloves makes you appreciate warm, lazy beach days oh so VERY, very much.
