Snow, early in the morning, after a cold, windy night.

Carpet. But I think it's actually snow?! Is there SNOW where you live?

Leanne said...

I thought it was sand.

A nice, shag carpet.

It's funny. But the first thing I thought of didn't have anything to do with the surface at all. I saw the shadow lines that are more or less vertical across it and I thought about what might cause that shadow and whether or not the sun was the light source. First impression was... bars on a window? Are you trapped somewhere? Is this the secret message you're sending for help because your captors are monitoring your communication and you can't send an overt signal?

Yeah, I'm not like anyone else:P

Visual: sand. Emotional: nostalgia for last week's holiday. Sigh.

White, pristine, sparkling snow that is just waiting to have someone "write" their name on it and effectively turn it from white to yellow?

The shadow of powerlines on either snow or sand

Looks like snow.
Analysis of the pic:
Taken with a Pentax Optio 30 Digital Camera on Feb 12, 2005 @ 5:14:58 PM.
Looks like it has seen Photoshop & Pacasa 2.0...
Flash wasn't used but exposure time was 1/125 seconds.
The image was taken up close.
I'm bored.

Good one, Dave! I always seem to leave the background data hanging around...good on you for catching it.

For the record, it is indeed a picture of snow in my back yard. I shot it through a window, with the sun coming in from the left-hand side of the frame. What struck me about the scene was its otherworldly texture - like the moon, hence the entry's title.

It was warm outside when I posted it, so I thought a wintry scene would take me back. Hope it cooled y'all off.

Stay tuned for more photo fun. My archives are just busting with neat scenes.
