Hate is too strong a word for how I feel about winter, let's just say I dislike it a lot. Mostly because it's cold. I can hear the comments: "then why don't you move to a warmer climate?", "well you shouldn't be living HERE" blah blah blah.
I will say this about wintertime though, it provides great opportunities to get some cool shots. I love the first snow and walking in it and when there is ice stuck to walls and icicles hanging from bus stop roofs. I don't do justice with these pictures, but so it is.
