Ice and Snow

Here are two (the first has two versions) photos I took  back in February after an ice storm.


Ice & Snow

People never tell of ice
Or the snow that glitters nice
Or of the icy crunchy snow
Of that most people do not know
The crunch that sounds beneath your feet
As your sole and ice compete
When in the morning as you wake
You see a single white snow flake
You look out of the iced window
The look out seems so very low
Because the snow fell all night
It has left behind its sheet of white

    mmm, still particularly like that top one.

    By the way,
    here’s the wiki on Mondrian, the painter I mentioned at CC.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piet_Mondrian

    If you scroll down, you can see one of his Cubist tree paintings that I was reminded of by your second photo.
    The branches in his paintings became more and more linear, and eventually he ended up doing the very modern line and block paintings you see at the bottom.
