The Winteress

Oh weather, you tart!
Rain yesterday, snow today,
Please make up your mind.

on seeing a cold snowy winter again

Posted by Peder on 4 January 2009

An old friend is here,
the snow and ice cover all.
I am home, for now.

Hello winter, my old friend

Hello winter, my old friend

Peder with a D Presents: The Summer Palace … In Winter

Summer PalaceIt’s been almost two years now since I was last in China, but this is one of my favorite pictures from that trip. I’m overlooking some sort of pagoda at the Summer Palace, a few miles northwest of Beijing.

This was actually the second time I had visited this site, both happening in the months of January – 2004 and 2007, respectively. Ironically, I’ve never been to the Summer Palace during the summer. (But the compound is so much easier to navigate when you can cross the frozen lake.) I took my jacket off for this photo and my smile hides the fact that it was about 15 degrees Fahrenheit, but that crisp air makes for good photography.

I traveled with a buddy of mine, depicted below. Good times.

The snow has fallen,
Temperatures are dropping,
Winter is here. Crap.
