When I turned off the lights before going to bed the other day, I suddenly noticed the full moon shining outside. I grabbed my camera to see if I could capture the mood outside.
Well, not quite successful, – a camera is just that, – but when looking at the shots, I noticed the coloured ring around the moon. As kids we were looking out for the ring around the moon since that would mean snow would be coming soon, at that time we thought snow was fun and were looking forward to it.
The ring still predicts snow, and even though snow is beautiful, somehow it is not as much fun as it used to be, – more of a nuisance, in fact. It is definitely an age thing.
But come it did, nevertheless.
Here it is on its way in from the north west, – and this was just the beginning.
There are a few things that I still like about the snow, such as the strong “graphic” created by the contrast between the trees and the snow. Suddenly there are lots of new lines and shapes right outside my windows.
I played a little with the tree photo:
The inverted grayscale tree done in Kaleider.
