While dealing with the relentless cold weather and gray skies that winter brings, it’s easy to become so overwhelmed by the dreary conditions that you start to loathe the cold and begin to feel like the other three seasons never even existed. But this microscopic look at the four seasons will help you cope with your winter blues by reminding you that there are indeed sunnier, warmer and snow-free days ahead, and they are absolutely gorgeous — even artistic — when viewed through a microscope/macro lens.

From Beauty of Science — who previously soothed us with silver and lead “growth” video — this Seasons in a Small World clip combines color and chemical reactions to depict the changing seasons in a way that we’ve never seen before and we’re kind of obsessed with how good it makes us feel.

The video begins with several bursts of bright hues like green, fucshia, blue and yellow that represent spring and remind us how good it feels to see everything on Earth literally come alive after winter.

These brilliantly captivating up-close looks at nature might also help you break up the monotony if you live in a place where the seasons don’t change.

Those images are beautiful enough to frame, hang and glare at longingly until winter finally gives way to warmer temps, pleasant breezes, rain showers and beautiful fall foliage.

So beautiful. It’s always nice to take a step back and admire nature from a distance, but this kinetic representation of spring, summer, autumn and winter makes us all the more appreciative of the seasons (that includes you too, winter).
