I took this photo of a berry slowly becoming encapsulated by ice on a cold winter day in Michigan. For me, this photo represents the changing in seasons and the in-between phase where the last remnants of the prior season hang on and the new season begins. I think it also transforms winter—a season which many people dislike because of the cold—into something beautiful with many natural marvels that we can appreciate if we simply pause to observe them.
