I am currently reviewing my Adobe Lightroom catalogue to share images that have not been previously posted, perhaps seeing them with older eyes. These photographs were taken in February 2012, approximately twelve years ago. We had a lot of snow storms that year. A cursory review of my Adobe Lightroom catalogue reveals that, despite the cold weather that winter, I spent a considerable amount of time outdoors.
The images depict scenes at Selody Farm in Montgomery Township during the winter. The farm is covered in a blanket of snow, with a solitary willow tree as the focal point of the first photograph, its branches bending under the weight of the falling snow.
Adjacent to the willow tree stands an ageing barn, its weathered wooden exterior bearing witness to past winters. The barn's roof is covered with a thick layer of snow, undisturbed by the usual daily farm activities.
The entire landscape is dominated by shades of white and grey, seamlessly merging the sky with the land.
A frost-covered fence post, capped with snow, frames the barn. The tranquil haze of a snowy day envelops the scenery, conveying a profound sense of stillness in winter's icy grip. The scene exudes isolation as if the farm is suspended in time. I left, anticipating the warmth that would follow my return home.
