Winter Peace

Nature sleeps through winter unperturbed by the world around it. The silence, the stillness, and the monochromatic visual surrounds all combine to reduce sensory input and provide an overwhelming feeling of calm when travelling through a winter forest. The sense of quiet comes from the high porosity of loosely packed crystals of freshly fallen snow which trap sound waves. Asahi-dake, Hokkaido, Japan
