You can’t help but envy trains when driving in heavy fog and snow–not much chance of accidentally driving off into the ditch in a train!
Out for a drive on a foggy evening, I stopped to take a photo back towards town. It wasn’t until I went skiing in a small valley between where I was and the lights of town that I realized that the power line I had photographed a few nights earlier went right by our house.
Not a stunningly unique winter shot but one that pleases me nonetheless. And the fluffy, white snow that day is a nice contrast to the muck-brown look that appeared around here the last few days due to temps in the 50s. Also a nice move back from yesterday’s blatantly political post. (That was something I felt compelled to do but really isn’t my preferred focus for artistic expression. I’m generally in the mode of “don’t ask don’t tell” when it comes to politics and people I don’t know these days–it avoids needlessly unpleasant interactions. But sometimes enough is enough! Hopefully those sometimes won’t occur too often.)
This is such a trivial bit of hypocrisy compared to the sh**storm that’s going on in Washington right now it seems almost pointless to post about it–especially because it’s been reported in the media off and on for some time. But because it’s the first time I’ve encountered such evidence personally and visually, I felt compelled to record it.
