One winter morning an orange hue was cast over the whole view. It was particularly striking in combination with the boxcars lined up just outside town. The colours and perspective held great promise for a painting. A few years later, here’s the result, almost finished.
This is the best kind of winter day! It might be colder than comfortable, but the sun’s rays are strong. Everything is blue and white, but an incredible number of shades. What colour are shadows in the snow? Not black!
Sunlight and shadows.
Colour and contrast!
I didn’t notice the jet until I got home and looked at the photo.
The incredible intricacy of frost.
A sheltered spot, but chilly in the shade.
Shadow patterns are like stained glass windows laid on the snow.
The snaggle-toothed railway fence is surprisingly photogenic, filtering snow into drifts.
Fence posts are more interesting the older they get.
