Washington Trust has selected "Winter State House," a photograph of the Rhode Island State House, by Derrick Robinson of Providence R.I., as the December winner of the I Luv RI 2012 photo contest.
Snowfall instills in me a sense of peace and tranquility, because it forces our fast-paced world to slow down just a bit, said Robinson. Adding, Snow also has a way of highlighting the natural beauty of our surroundings. Who hasnt looked out there window just after a snowstorm and just been awed by the delightful scenery? Rhode Islands State House is a magnificent sight anytime of the year, but the beauty of this building is intensified even more when covered with snow."
