Winter Landscapes

I am a bit late with my photo supply as my Mom died this Saturday. It was not really unexpected as she had a severe stroke end of October and was in coma since then but when the end finally comes it is nevertheless a shock. I think this will always be the case.

Structures and Patterns...

I am always fascinated by these structures and patterns pine needles leave in wintertime because then the light plays with them...

Winter at the Olympia Lake...

When the sun is shining the winters don't seem so bad any more. Actually it creates that kind of mood where everything and everyone is waiting for something...

More Winter Impressions....

Blue sky and snowy whites - a nice composition but still too cold for my taste...

Icing on my Needles...

I don't know why but when pine needles look like this they make me always giddy. They look so funny and beautiful at the same time...

Winter Impressions....

The only thing I like with winter is that everything seems to have a glassy quality - delicate and ready to break with the lightest breeze...

The Ice Queen was here - icing the Leaves...

It's definitely winter since a couple of weeks already and I have already enough of it (I have always enough of it!). Tonight we even have had the lowest temperatures since 2003 and additionally on the very same day: - 9°C ( I don't know what the offical temperature was yet but this was the temperature on my balcony).

No colour only grey days, hardly any sun besides today a bit and it is cold - freezing cold. No chance even so far to capture some nice pictures of snow and ice in the sun - so I have to come back to last years photos of two days only where the world seemed to have been put under a spell - the one of the ice queen...
