064/2011 a lovely sight

064/2011 a lovely sight, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

The sun is getting more and more powerful, day by day. Today I could almost see the piles of snow getting lower in front of my eyes! Streets are full of puddles, and roofs almost clear of snow.

It’s a messy time, but how I love this mess!

062/2011 mad as a march hare

That’s how I’ve felt all through this crazy, busy week after the holidays. It’s been very difficult to get back into working routine, and I feel as if I have just been jumping, rushing and bolting around, without accomplishing much.

This saying instantly came to mind when I spotted these traces in our garden, left by another mad March hare last night!

057/2011 layers

Not the prettiest sight, but quite interesting textured layers of white and grey, dirty snow, with clear blue sky on top. A promise of spring, anyway!

043/2011 white on white

Just a picture of the colour scheme outdoors. The pile of snow sitting on our garden fence, epitomizes the immobile state of winter. Nothing moves, it just is!

I couldn’t decide which photo to choose today – this one or the one below. In the end, it was the straight lines above that better depicted my lazy mood today.

040/2011 icing on the trees

Rapidly dipping temperatures, after yesterday’s snow storm, created these formations on the trees – like thick icing. Clear blue skies added to the crisp effect. At sunset the scenery was particularly attractive.

Pretty, but terribly cold! My poor fingers almost froze while taking these pictures. Winter is still showing its might, and holding us in its icy grip.

027/2011 no outside lunch yet

027/2011 no outside lunch yet, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

And not for some time, I don’ t think. Snow has become my photo theme for this week. I can remember sitting at this table many times last autumn. It’s in front of the inn, where I and one of my colleagues often go for lunch on school days. I am beginning to wish my time away with this winter…

But the yellow wall of the old house looked pretty amidst all the white.

026/2011 yes, there is a car there

A common sight along our streets. Cars in various stages of getting buried under snow. Looks as if this one is a beetle. Might be somebody’s summer car, so it doesn’t have to be dug out, but can wait for the snow the disappear in spring. In built and densely populated areas, the masses of snow are creating big problems. Modern man and nature at odds.

At long last some sunshine – light and shadow playing on the snow. What an instant change in my mood and energy levels!
