The stark contrast of dark evergreens against the snow always excites my imagination. Even familiar places feel remote and mysterious under a mantle of snow.


Snow has made everything earthly clear and quiet.
My mind is simple and patient.

~ Tuomas Anhava, Finnish poet

Love the lyrical composition and snowy atmosphere - could do with a little snow here in Brisbane to cool things down...
