Winter Contrasts

Since last week, we’ve been from sunny cold weather, to milder temperatures with 2-3 days of intense snowfall, followed by thaw and slush, which in turn has now frozen again to knobbly ice…

Friday: Snowfall (photo zoomed in from my balcony).

Monday: Thawing and very foggy. I know it’s foggy when the skyscraper I usually see the top of from my kitchen window is gone from my horizon… I was tempted to go out into the big empty snowy football field nearby to try to capture the mysterious sense of “another world”.

The playground was spookily empty too (late morning of the Monday when kids go back to school after the Christmas holiday)

Today we were back to crisp and clear and sunny, presenting quite the opposite kind of photo challeges (backlighting and lens flare).

  3. These are beautiful!
    No snow yet in my area, but it is forecast for this weekend and now definitely cold enough. Blue skies right now, and I am working from home today - might use my lunch break for a walk in the sun.

  4. I can deal with cold when the sky is sunny and blue, too depressing otherwise.
