Winter came for a short visit. For some three or four days we actually had temps below freezing point and a bit of snow and a clear sky with the sun out. As of today, though, we are back to too warm temps, thick, grey clouds, heavy rain and lots of wind. Blah! Here are some of the "Ice and Snow" (in pathetic amounts, mind you) close-ups I took when I had the chance. On Thursday I left the house before sunrise and captured the first few pics right AT sunrise, which made the dusting of snow that we then had look all pink (and other things, too). 1. 2. Later the red-ish colour of very early light changed to more yellow-golden as the sun rose higher: 3. (Can you live with the composition here?) 4. 5. 6. In shadow-y areas there still was quite a bit of blue in the air 7. Here time was nearing 10:30h and the more "magic" light got exchanged by some more "regular" light 8. 9. This may well be ALL the "Ice and Snow" pics I'll ever get this winter... or I get more of these in March when we all long for spring!?!?
