Two seasons at once


Winter is a little tough around here, especially when we're deep into Winter and Winter doesn't even begin for another week! Today, as the ice falls, turns to slush, gets churned into some kind of unholy slurry on the roads, people tend to complain. To paraphrase the great Melanie: Winter can be beautiful, but mostly it's not.

It didn't seem quite so secret with its luxurious blanket of leaves stripped away, and I wondered how I could properly illustrate this most dramatic of seasonal differences.

Then I remembered I have taken a lot of pictures!

Sure enough I found some random Summer shots of Shangri-la. So I tracked down their locations and did my best to match my original point of view. 

Here are the best of my results:

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
