Barren Snow Fields




Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow. 

~ Langston Hughes

There we were driving along at 80km. Oh! Can we stop I asked my husband - look at the white outs across the fields. No, he proclaimed. So I did what any photography obsessed person would do - rolled down the window and took my best shot. 

I loved how the sun was peaking through the snow clouds and the wind was white washing the ground with a veil of snow. 

I like the dreamy feel they have - like waking up after a hazy dream. I must admit I'd like to wake up and find out winter was just a dream so it can just be over.

I used Kim Klassen's  kk_violet and Jessica Drossin's  Dounpour on the first photo.
The second was done with Kim's kk_0312 and Jessica's SGU.

Beautiful! Even better knowing they were take-your-best-shot images. Stay Warm!

So frustrating to not be able to stop and take a shot...ugh! But I have to say you have master the "photography on the move." You would never know you were popping out of a window, wind in your face, cold fingers and going how fast? These are very intriguing photos...each has a story to deep into winter.

Bleak, yet beautiful. I, too, shoot from a moving car, since I hate to ask him to stop. You did well...
