Hello and top of the year to you all. Here in “sunny” Italy I’m ready for this new round, let’s see though if my old computer is willing to collaborate allowing me to connect. It’s been an ongoing battle for the past few weeks.
The photo I’ve chosen to work (play) with was taken on the 27th of December. Here in my valley on Lake Garda, we rarely get snow, and if we do it just barely covers the roof tops, so it was really an exceptional opportunity to get a shot right outside my window.
The first thing I’d like to do is bring that snow out … so I shadowed a little and then used the HDR filter on Picasa 3 to see what happened … the results were quite satisfactory, so I added my borders and here you are!
soft snow-flakes piling up
muffling the world in white
no anger can penetrate
no flaming tempers raise
just an unearthly silence
to remind us all today
of quickly passing summers
and long long winter nights.
I’m linking this to Captivate Me for the first week of the One Four Challenge …
