First day of Christmas, first snow in Toronto. Getting up early in the morning for a winter wonderland photoshoot at High Park, Toronto. Good timing: lockdown and holidays, more ducks than people.
Winter in High Park photos and quotes.

“The color of springtime is flowers; the color of winter is in our imagination.” – Terri Guillemets
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'” – Lewis Carroll
“‘Hear! hear!’ screamed the jay from a neighboring tree, where I had heard a tittering for some time, ‘winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel, if you know where to look for it.'” – Henry David Thoreau
“To appreciate the beauty of a snowflake it is necessary to stand out in the cold.” – Aristotle
“No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.” – Hal Borland
