I made an attempt to go outside today despite the fact that I am not feeling all that well. It’s the sunshine and fresh air that I was after, but it’s the bitter cold that has brought me back in. Unbelievable.
I have been collecting icicles that have been growing off the roof and planting them into the snow bank by the front door. The sun was reflecting so nicely off of them and the brilliant blue of the sky was making for a lovely background. The picture doesn’t quite capture what I was seeing. It was also a difficult angle, as I didn’t want any of the neighbors houses or the road to be seen in the background.
What the picture is successful at is conveying the feeling of cold; ice, snow and ice blue sky. I think I’ll try this again after I scout out a better location for the icicles.
