Dirty Snow

Not all the snow is always, white and clean.
This time it was a little bit dirty. Sometimes the snow looks so soft and white I would like to jump on it and eat as much as I can...
... some other times.. NOT!


A strange phenomenon is happening. 48hrs ago we were at -15°C with 45cms of Snow.. but today we are at +11°C. Therefore in the last 24hrs the snow has melt almost everywhere. snow can only be found in small amounts and a little bit dirt.

Snow Flake

Early in the morning, before scratching the ice from the car I saw a small and delicate Snow Flake, totally symmetrical surrounded by many ice crystals. I wonder if he fells lonely among them.

This was the closest I can take it with the current lens.

Falling Drops

Good day.
This time I was going to take the picture of the ice stalactites formed outside the kitchen window.
It was. ( still is) very cold outside -9°C. however to avoid some dirt on the window to appear on the picture, I opened the window. After the third picture (I was experimenting with the Aperture). I noticed that the heat from the house, while going out the window was enough to make them melt and start generating drops.
Therefore I change the settings to make some tests on (Tv Time Value) to try to get a clear drop on free fall.

I must admit it took me some time to be able to synchronize the shoot with the falling drop :-P

Cold Week

This Week I will try to post pictures refering to COLD.

This is the view of the frozen car today in the morning, What was special about is that even if it is almos allways frozen on this time of the yea. this time it was somehow different. It was kind of soft texture. Not Ice.. but Not snow. just weird but nice.

Heart Bottle

This Heart bottle, is one of the symbols that was used in my wedding last October. Now it is placed in our livingroom.


We had lots of candles that we wanted to get rid of, so we turn on some of them. by coincidence 3 of them were placed near the bottle and generate a nice symetric pattern on the wall.
I hope you like it...
