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.
“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.
Alsace now, it is assumed to be winter according to the calendar.
Nevertheless meet a creature that is expected to be a sign of non-winter.
Signs and decoration on woodwork are similar to being secret signals.
Buildings in Alsace are rich in these kinds of fun intricacies.
The construktions are very impressive in many different ways.
Some of the roof surfaces are most similar to flat cobblestones.
it requires very solid underpinning due to the weight.
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.
Winter mood in Alsace, the only white is clouds in the sky.
The fields lie dormant wearing earth-colored “nightwear”,
or perhaps more indicative said earth-colored nudity.
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.
