I’ve promised you snow, well, this is snow 🙂
It does not look exactly like a tiny park almost in the center of Vienna, but that’s only the power of the wide-angle. This is a park along the 200 meters between my workplace and the entrance to the Underground. When I walked by, on my way to the train, I suddenly saw the peculiar configuration of these trees, the snow sticking to their north sides and the still colored leaves.

The other image is from this morning. By chance I saw an open house entrance, walked in and took some images. This is the one I liked most. Post-processing with Photomatix Pro and Photoshop. I’ve deliberately added some grain. I know that many people detest it, but in some cases it simply looks right.
The Song of the Day is “Amid the Falling Snow” from Enya’s fabulous 2005 album “Amarantine”. Hear it on YouTube.
