The winter might bring a close to budding flowers, more sun and warmer evenings, but that does not mean the North Fork is not still buzzing with beauty. Fluffy white snow and colorful sunsets are just a couple of the things winter brings.

And there are some locals out there who are helping to capture the moments.
