I took Figure 1 with my IPhone through my back window just before dawn this morning, The trees were covered heavily in snow from yesterday’s very wet storm. Here again is the beauty that drives us to live in New England. I have added noise to the image to give it the photopictorialism sense that I love so much and also to capture the indistinct sense of the early morning light. The blueness comes both from the (Rayleigh) light scattering off the snow and also from the cloudy greyness of the stormy morning. It is a blessing to behold such light. And it is an assertion of both the bitterness of a northern winter and of the coming spring.
