About the Book
What is the color of Winter? Some think of the season as gray and dark and brooding. But look around and you will see a wide spectrum of colors: reds, and yellows, purple and green, copper and silver.
Wintertime is not a season of death and dormancy, but a season of rest and regeneration. So lift up your spirits, look around you, and be filled with the joy of the season.
Rejuvenate your soul with the warmth of hearth and family. Take to the hills with a full heart and a grateful head. May your Winter journey be filled with warmth.
Explore winter through the eyes of Photographer and writer, Michael Axel. Let Axel show you what he has seen for decades of Winters. Together with a rich sense of his Celtic heritage, Winter's Chant is richly designed with over 38 plates of powerful photographs, and as many ancient chants, prayers, blessings, and traditions from many cultures.
This book will warm your heart, point out all the joy of a Wintertime in nature, and change the way you view your surroundings.
“Tis a lifeless soul that does not take a full journey through Winter.”

Axel is a photographer, artist, and writer. He took his first photograph at age 7, built his first darkroom at age 12 and learned about sharp lenses when his father gave him his first real camera, a 35mm Zeiss Ikon Contessa, which he still uses on occasion today. His stand development technique started at an early age, and one of his first images appeared in a prestigious art competition at the Portland Art Museum. He has also had other exhibits in art museums, and also worked as a stringer photographer for UPI. To help pay for college, Axel worked for the distributor of Hasselblad cameras working at camera shows. His perception of quality images was set and his lifelong pursuit of quality images was well underway. Today Axel works mainly with photography, building exhibits and writing articles and books. Occasionally he paints and works on his kinetic sculpture.
