About the Book
Winter River honors individuals dedicated to understanding their own seasons. Photographs in this collection celebrate the value of the waiting-time. Words penned here are part of a personal process of gentling down internally, a purposeful tiptoed trail within. Above all, Winter River is a celebration of the joy available through clarity of pristine silence born in Winter and perpetuated by River.
Ann Parks McCray lives and works in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she enjoys ocean, rivers, trees, lakes, water birds, blooming flowers--everything Mother Nature has to offer. Nature is often the focus of her paintings, poetry, and photography--and so, of her books. Her work is designed to inspire, calm, and restore. McCray in her own words: "We all tiptoe along a delicate path as we attempt further self-definition through self-expression. Thank you for marking this trail with me."
