Snow Series 1

I like snow for the most part, especially when it is wind-blown and sculpts fine lines in the landscape. I don’t always like shovelling the stuff, especially when I am lazy however I always feel invigorated after the job is done. It has so many qualities: crusty, sharp, melting, fluffy, icy,pristine, dirty.

I thought that I would like to do a series about the different ways I see snow. First is snow in the context of a larger scene. I really don’t know where I am going with this, I was going to post a bunch of images at one time but I think that I can make a stronger statement by posting a single image. How many in the series? I don’t know, but I will try to remember to label them. Here is the first.

  1. I love the beauty of snow as it falls, blows, layers, reflects. I’m no fan of the shovelling part either! We are suppose to get 2-4″ tonight, I’m excited to see it. As long as it’s only a few inches at most. I don’t know how you and others can deal with snow for a whole season, I shiver just at the thought! 🙂

    Reflecting on your photo, what a great contrast of black and white, along with a simple person in the foreground and the huge building skyline in the distance. Nice Jane! Keep ’em coming!

    Happy New Year Jane! I like the theme you have started, There is many ways we see, feel,and deal with snow. It can be a lovely blanket made of sparkling diamonds covering up the ugly messes nature and man has made. Snow can also cause man a great deal of frustration. It can be
    “in the way” when it blocks our pathI could go on and on.

    I could go on and on. It is your project not mine. I am looking forward to see what lies ahead!
