Snow White | #monomad Challenge

in Black And White2 months ago

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
#monomad Challenge
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" ;)

Snow in the mountains

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.

What a heavy snow. Nice photo with the little cabin. I wonder what the people in the cabin are thinking. 😊

This cabin is not a real cabin but only a wooden shed for farm tools and equipment 😉

Thank you that you like the photos, Vincent 😄

It does look like a beautiful winter wonderland. I really love the first photo with the little cabin.

Neat how you have the double Christmas trees stand out from the background. Maybe that’s my favorite. I can’t decide. :)

The poem describes the snow perfectly dear Hannes. “It makes an even face.”

Have a wonderful Thor’s Day! 🙂

Good morning Jo,

that was the only time this winter when I have been out in real heavy snowfall, but I'm hoping for more such days soon 😉

Yes, snow makes all even and cleans dirty and messy places - all looks much cleaner and fresher when that white stuff covers it ;)

Thank you so much for your kind compliments, dear Jo, I hope everything's fine and wish you also a wonderful day today 🤗

Thanks a lot for the rehive and for the goodies 😁


Cheers with !BEER and !WINE

Most welcome Hannes, 🙂

Our snow is staying for now and the temperatures are a bit above freezing. I don’t mind a winter when it’s not too cold.

Everything is fine here dear Hannes and I hope also in your corner of the planet. 🙂🤗

Hi Jo,

thank you, it's all fine here - there's still a little bit of snow left in town and we are still in lockdown for another two weeks 😉

If you look very carefully under the tree you will see me hiding in plain sight enjoying the white powder steadily dropping around.... imagination!

That looks like some heavy falls have been happening, using monochrome definitely brings out more detail.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend cuddled up in front of the fire with a cat on you lap and a !BEER in hand, no need for chilling at all.

I thought I had seen someone when I took the photos, but I wasn't sure - now I know I have seen right 😉

That snow was really like powder, very light and easy to walk in 🙂

Thank you so much, Joan, your comments are always so kind. I wish you also a wonderful weekend 😊 hopefully the weather is as nice as your words 🌞

What a beauty 🥰 @johannpiber
I want to be in the snow too 😂

I can imagine your enjoyment of the walk .... And I can imagine the snowflakes melting on your face and blurring your vision .... When it snows like that, I could walk for hours ...... and I hope that the snow will make us happy soon. ...❄️

Enjoy the snow and I wish you a nice day and a wonderful upcoming weekend ...@johannpiber ❄️🤗✨

I couldn't enjoy it for long, because if I had stayed longer the road would have been covered too high with snow to drive and I might have had to wait for hours till it would have been driveable again 😉

Thank you very much for your kind comment, @Suzana72, I wish you also a wonderful weekend 😊

Later it was snowing even more, but then luckily it almost stopped, because otherwise I might not have been able to get back down to the valley again because of the snow on the road 🤣 bu tit was beautiful indeed, thank you so much @cezary-io 😁

Wow! Very strange photos! The world has turned into white on white! Almost no colours except white!

The original photos have a bit of a blueish tone, but are about the same colourless, the black&white conversion looks a bit better in my eyes 👀

Thank you so much for your kind comment, dear @kaminchan, white is our preferred colour in wintertime 😃

Well i do hope you get to see a bit more sun ever though it won't be a real warm sun 🌞

And all the best to you and family for 2021 🚀🍻🎉

The sun is shining today, but the temperatures are quite far below 0 C ❄️
I wish you and your family also all the best for 2021 - take care and stay healthy, my friend 🤗


Cheers and !BEER

Enjoy while it lasts nice to see the sun but yeah i would expect it not to be warm. Have a great weekend @johannpiber 👍

We have -9 C / 16 F outside, so yeah, it's quite cold ❄️😉 but as soon as it gets brighter I want to go for a short walk and maybe take some frosty photos ... or not, I'll see.
You have a nice Sunday too, @kohsamui99 🤗

Oh my.. it is 28 C here in Byron Bay was out for a swim this morning...hehe...will be looking forward to your frosty photos 😇

Well, it's a bit too cold for swimming here . I have a very busy week, but an idea for a very short post ... maybe I can find some time later, but after looking at 3 monitors for the whole day at work, I sometimes don't even want to turn the computer on at home ☺️

Amazing "double christmas tree" covering with snow in black and white photos! It's a good idea that you took photos of it in different versions. Great shot! 🙂

Oh to me this is the winter wonderland! Snow... loootts of snow. Blizzards and even more snow :D

That is definitely a lot of snow. There's also something really magical about forest snow that just seems so peaceful and tranquil.

It is as you say ... magical, peaceful, tranquil - almost no other sound is to hear, but the falling snow ❄️
