Pastels Of Winter by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

In New England, the light paints summer scenes in broad, bold brush strokes. Winter scenes find themselves blended and feathered in subtle pastels.

There are a variety of reasons for this pastel effect. A lower angle to the sun. Ice crystals in the air. Reasons for this are found in meteorology, physics, and chemistry. What is important at this point is to appreciate their fleeting beauty as the season changes.
