Over the holidays I was visiting my family in Canada where the temperatures were sub-zero, and I realized how radically my blood has thinned since I moved to Northern California 15 years ago. Back in California, although not sub-zero, it has definitely been chilly enough for mittens and scarves, and the grass is crunchy with frost every morning. Anyone suffering through a snowy winter will have no sympathy whatsoever, but I assure you the discomfort of kneeling on frosty grass to capture my monochromatic shot today was very difficult. Oh so hard.
But the landscape in Jennifée's shot wins the frosty prize. Taken with her cellphone (really!) from a train window between Lillehammer and Gardermoen on Christmas Day, it channels The Polar Express. Simply stunning. Although even looking at it makes me want to wrap myself in a blanket with a mug of hot cocoa. It's amazing to me the stories that can be told even with subtle variations of tone and colour.
