Last year on this day, I took this picture, parked on the side of a narrow road in the middle of farming pastures in southern Sweden. Now, the idea of ‘cold’ is hard to convey if you’re not directly experiencing sub-arctic frost or, as I like to call it, Nuclear Winter. It seems to me that when it comes to photography, however, the color ‘blue’, especially in its lightest shades and hues, tells you the air on this day was filled with ice crystals, which add a rather ‘gauzy’ or hazy effect to this frigid landscape.
