IDA GROVE, Iowa, Dec. 30, 2015 — “This time of the year, with snow on the ground, it can look bleak,” photographer Don Poggensee was saying, just after Christmas here in northwest Iowa. Colors in nature aren’t as obvious as in other seasons. “But if you look and train your eyes to see beauty, wintertime can be full of color and excitement,” he continued. As eight photos here demonstrate, he found gorgeous color on his recent shoot around his hometown.
