Blanket of Snow

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 4 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

A blanket of snow covers the picnic tables at one of the picnic venues of Van Patten Woods in Wadsworth, Illinois.

Photo captured December 27, 2010, only days before a two-day, 54-degree heat wave that eliminated all signs of this winterscape.

The vignette works well to increase the sense of solace and desolation, our has eventually disappeared over the last couple of days after a 10 degree rise in temperature. It lay for over 38 days!

Wonderful vignetting for this peaceful frame, as is the subtle downshift in brightness and that sweet backdrop of soft cloud cover. And the trees? You can't go wrong!

Winter one day, summer the next, lots of beautiful snow. Wonderful how that one
striking tree takes over this gorgeous landscape.
