Snow: Co-Creating the Story

I was planning to spend today very differently, but it just kept snowing and snowing. By mid-afternoon, about 10 inches had completely transformed the landscape. Surrendering to the new shape of my day, I took my camera for a walk to capture the “story of snow” and how it defines lines and spaces, foregrounds and backgrounds.

This is what I found….think of how differently any of these scenes might have looked without the snow as a defining contributor and co-creator.

A patio table not quite ready for company:

The railing pickets shaped the snow on the edge of the deck:

Fence posts with white hats:

Here, the hat begins to slip a little:

Grasses catching handfuls of snow:

Smooth white defining an oval of wilderness:

The white background helps these Japanese Maple twigs flaunt their beautiful color:

The blue garden creature meditates under a snowy blanket:

And that is my snow story!

    These truly are classic winter images. It’s my favorite kind of snow, too — the sort that does transform the landscape. One thing I especially like is the hollow underneath the table piled high with snow. And that second photo? Dare I confess I see a row of white marshmallow Peeps?

  7. Thoroughly enjoyed your examination of how snow “defines lines and spaces, foregrounds and backgrounds.”
