ice wide shut


Once in a while, the suburb turns into an icy spectacle. Here's a frosty postcard from Sollentuna.

at 1st glance it looks sepia, not icy at all. ^0^
like the title though...

Snow and ice in unexpected quantities tends to shut down the city so, yes, I figured it did make some sense...

It was a sepia kind of night.

The colors are eerie. Very cool photo, but glad I wasn't there!

Nice! Some snowy nights are sepia, or yellowy,aren't they?

It looks as though there is a crashed bus on the other side of the hedge.

Jacob said...

Yikes! Not for me. Been there, done that!

You spelled "turquoise" correctly. Blue-green would work, too.

Have a great week!

Wish I was there, I love snow :-)

JM said...

This is brilliant!

Andreea said...

Looks frosty out there. The night sky is the same here too; everything comes out looking like sepia.

Kids tend to love this. Grown-ups find lots of woes and difficulties, as usual.

Halcyon: I never thought about it as eerie but I see what you mean.

cieldequimper: They most certainly are. Not my favourite light exactly but... well, interesting.

Gerald: Not to worry. More like a garden shed in fact.

Jacob: And, following that, a great weekend.

Tinsie: Now that's the spirit!

JM: My fingers didn't agree but now I do.

Andreea: So we've clearly got ourselves a sepia trend then.

Thanks everyone.
