Snow White | #monomad Challenge

My first post in 2021 ... the new year starts almost as the old has ended - the problems are still here and my first post is in Black & White just as my last posts in 2020 have been.

Snow White

This post is also my first entry in 2021 for the #monomad challenge created by @brumest and hosted by @monochromes.

On January 2, 2021 it was slightly snowing here in town in the valley and I thought I might have a good time driving on a mountain road where I haven't been for quite a while. So, I took my photography gear and drove towards west and later over the "Windische Höhe" pass.
When I arrived at the Farchtensee, which is a little mountain lake next to the pass road, it began to snow more and a bit later I could take the following photos in style "white on white with some shadows" ;)

I know, there's not much to see in the photos, but I quite like this kind of images. Converting the anyway almost #monochrome photos to Black & White made them look even better in my eyes.

Above you can see a double christmas tree - beautiful, but a little bit too high for any home, I believe ;)

A cool looking tree photographed from different angles and zoomed closer. You might recognize a hunters seat on the left side between the branches.

The Snow

It sifts from leaden sieves,
It powders all the wood,
It fills with alabaster wool
The wrinkles of the road.

It makes an even face

Of mountain and of plain, -
Unbroken forehead from the east
Unto the east again.

It reaches to the fence,
It wraps it, rail by rail,
Till it is lost in fleeces;
It flings a crystal veil

On stump and stack and stem, -
The summer's empty room,
Acres of seams where harvests were,
Recordless, but for them.

It ruffles wrists of posts,
As ankles of a queen, -
Then stills its artisans like ghosts,
Denying they have been.

by Emily Dickinson
