More about Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day is on the fourth Thursday of November. It is a time to give thanks for the harvest and of the preceding year. Today, Thanksgiving means spending time with family and friends over a large feast. Thanksgiving Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1863.

Celebration\ Observance
Thanksgiving Day centers around family and friends where a meal is shared. The meal traditionally includes turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, rolls, gravy and pumpkin pie. It's a time to reflect and give thanks for what they have. Parades and festivities are held in some cities, portraying Thanksgiving and marking the start of the Christmas season. Most government and businesses are closed. Many people have the Friday after Thanksgiving off giving them a four day weekend which is popular to see family and friends out of town.

Beautiful photo from photographer Gregory Colbert - Ashes & Snow (01)

Beautiful photo with inspiring quote from the Dalai Lama. This is just one photo from the stunning serie photos 'Ashes & Snow' made by photographer / filmmaker Gregory Colbert. For more information, see the enclosed link below. Another blog from this fantastic photographer will follow later on, see this BLOG 02
More about the photographer
Photographer/filmmaker Gregory Colbert is the creator of the exhibition 'Ashes and Snow', an immersive experience of nature that combines photographic artworks, films and soundscapes, housed in a purpose-built traveling structure called the Nomadic Museum. To date, 'Ashes and Snow' has attracted over 10 million visitors, making it the most attended exhibition by any living artist in history.
Colbert was born in Toronto, Canada in 1960. He began his career in Paris in 1983 making documentary films on social issues. His first exhibition, Timewaves opened to wide critical acclaim in 1992 at the Museum of Elysée in Switzerland. For the next ten years, Colbert went off the grid and did not publicly share his art or show any films. He began traveling the world to photograph and film wondrous interactions between animals and humans.
After ten years passed, Colbert returned to present 'Ashes and Snow' at the Arsenale in Venice, Italy in 2002. With his debut, Photo magazine declared: "A new master is born.” The New York Times, in an article by Alan Riding stated: “The power of the images comes less from their formal beauty than from the way they envelop the viewer in their mood. They are simply windows to a world in which silence and patience govern time.” Ashes and Snow has been described as "extraordinary" by the Economist and "distinctive monumental in every sense" by the Wall Street Journal. Stern Magazine described the photographs as "fascinating" and Vanity Fair named Gregory Colbert in its "Best of the Best."
