About this photo: All week long, Thematic Photographic explores winter-themed images. If you've got something you'd like to share, head over here to get the ball rolling.When auto manufacturers want to whet the public's appetite for an upcoming model, they sometimes leak early drawings online. They're often quite abstract, sometimes as simple as a bare-bones pencil sketch. This practice builds excitement (no Pontiac jokes, please) and gives everyone a sense of what's coming.
In this economy, one surmises they should be releasing zillions of these so-called teasers. But I digress.
After I had dropped the little folks off at school on a particularly wintry morning last month, I noticed this vehicle - an Acura RDX - and immediately thought back to those abstract, sketch-like drawings I'd seen online so many times before. It's nice to know Mother Nature can improve on the car designer's art.
Your turn: How nature paints a scene. Please discuss.
