Be astonished

While in the cabin in the north woods of Minnesota I came across Mary Oliver's book of poetry "Red Bird". In contains her "Instructions for living a life" which reads:

Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.

I'm hoping these images convey the astonishing beauty and awe of winter on Lake Superior, Minnesota. I felt like a small child seeing the world for the first time. There is something magical about snow blanketing the shore and the woods, and something awe-inspiring about watching the sun rise over the lake in the early morning blue light.
