“What does Winter mean to you?”
The very thought of “Winter” makes me pull my hair out! I still wonder how different is Winter than the rest of the seasons.
To me, Winter means nothing more than a time for dreaming, of a real winter, more of the faraway frozen wintry streets, snow covered hills, frozen cars, the ice-skates, the chilled winds, numbness. A time for sipping hot coffee in the moon light. Winter to me, is a season for unfolding my mind towards the imagination of that beauty of the time, that I don’t see around. Frosty toes, runny nose, snowball fights, stormy nights, a walk in the winter wonderland. Of course, when you hear the songs like “Its the most wonderful time of the year” and “Snow is falling”, if you don’t belong to where its “white” , you imagine!
Well, thinking of the real winter, one needs to stretch the brain, when in India, to differentiate the season and the change in the surroundings unless otherwise you live in and around the Himalayan region?
Let me not blabber too much, as this is suppose to be a Photography Challenge, Thanks to Isa and here’s my contribution to Scotts Photography challenge – http://viewsinfinitum.com/2013/01/09/assignment-23-winter/
Below is a very special photograph, taken in Rann of Kutch – the white desert of India which consist of white salt, and not sand. During the monsoons the salt is underwater and completely wet. By the end of October, the water dries up and the stretches of crystalline salt can be seen, extended to a large area.
During the cold night, the beauty of the desert enhances amid st the moonlight.
Dear Visitors, I have exhausted my photo albums in search of “Winter”. Of that season, which exist more in my dreams. Of the snow covered houses, like the ones Isa has put up. As she says, India is a country with varied differences, how can there be no variations which gave me an opportunity to explore the spectrum wider.
Hope you enjoyed my version!
