Time to post another picture. I have been busy with a few other projects, which have kept me busy, Yesterday I took a couple images I liked. Particularly this one reminding me of the drawings and paintings by some of the great masters of Chinese painting.
A fresh load of snow made this day into another magical snow day. Of course i had to clean up our driveway and then other commitments prevented me of going out to take pictures. But not before I took some pictures of our backyard.
Yesterday was just a wonderful day for taking pictures. I like the older part of the city and the reason is that, unlike in the new suburbs and developments, it is the trees which give a neighbourhood character, which is quite often lacking in our cities suburbs.
I titled this image simply Winter. A few days ago on our walk along the city streets I took this picture of this beautiful maple tree. The light was of course quite harsh but I liked the image which has the quality of a pen and ink drawing. Adding some colour softened the strong contrast of the picture giving it a watercolour effect.
The holiday season is finished. All our visitors have returned home and our home is again unusually quiet. It was a wonderful Christmas festival. Good company, excellent food and lots of laughter. But now i am also glad to be back to our quiet life and will be back posting regularly on my blog and on Facebook. The days are getting longer, with the promise of Spring. of course the Winter will continue for a few more month.
