Blue Winter

Finally the weather and the cold I was fighting gave me a brake. After couple of days of polar temperatures and almost continuous snowfall, a clear and sunny beautiful winter day gave me the chance to walk around and capture some images. So to not be boring and post just few winter photos taken around my little home town, I remembered a poem that I read couple of days back , which I found that projects very well into the readers mind what I have experience today. I hope you enjoy the images and the poem !!!


Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.

The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how for.

You know the bluejay’s double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star.

***Poem by Robert Francis***
