I actually love his work too, but those stark, wintry photos left me cold (pun intended) at first. I am not a cold weather/snow kinda gal. Plus, we are in the latter stages of an early spring here, and I probably did not want to be reminded of the winter or the fact that cold weather could return before we are officially out of the winter season. Don’t know. But, the simmering thing often works for me. Put it aside, don’t think about it, and Voila!
