Winterly mood

Winter landscape in Alsace, not much white (snow) the closest on white
– it’s the memorial crosses from 1944 on the Colmar Pocket Memorial battlefield.
Respectively just, northeast of Kaysersberg and northwest of Colmar.

Walk inspired by “Restlessjo” and her captivating “Monday walk” themes.

Now in january 2020 much more peaceful and idyllic in muted colors.

Artwork by nature

There is no abstract art.
You must always start with something.
Afterward you can remove all traces of reality
*Pablo Picasso – spanish artist*

Alsace, nature only have to start with a half hidden stone, running water and sun rays.

Hidden nudity

Alsace, a lake on a quiet january winter day.
Hides its nudity by mirroring the surroundings.

The naked “wounds” in the forest are hidden by a green carpet of moss.

The pebbles seem at a distance to be a rug,
but seen closely, they break the uniformity.

Some green growths don’t know it’s winter and keep the color,
while stones use camouflage as if they had enemies.

Abandoned swimming pool

Peaceful and idyllic house with available swimming pool.
Sounds like a “must have” to many people.
Swimming pools tend to be overloaded with noisy people.
Although Alsace is “concentrated” in many ways.
Where culture, history, agriculture, business, infrastructure seem dominant.
Then there are places too, with the possibility of privacy without curious neighbors.
