In Focus: Baring the winter weather

Published: Friday, March 15, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

The day was growing bitterly cold and dainty, wisps of snow began to fall while I traversed a brick path hugging the Fox River. Looking for something – ANYTHING – that could merit a quality photo and allow me to get back to the comfort of the warm indoors, I spotted a goose near a group of ducks also bearing the wintry weather.

A delicate drop of water on the tip of the goose’s beak along with its seemingly morose state made for a perfect depiction of the day.
