photoblog image Red and White

Red and White

Taken from my stock of images, this one here shows a canal passing through one of the districts of Västerås. In peak winter, it was covered by a thick layer of ice and accumulated snowfall. Sometimes the only colour you could see outside would be the buildings which are often painted in these shades of red. 

 

Over time, these canals got littered with empty beer bottles, cans, plastic trash and discarded boxes, which would be quite a turn off after having seen the pristine whiteness of the snow on the frozen canal.

what a contrast between the red and white
Blimey! This was a bit of a shock after all the recent spring sunshine pictures people have been posting!
Ayush Basu: Haven't shot anything lately so uploaded this from my archives. Was feeling a tad nostalgic I suppose.

Amazing to think there is a canal under this.

I love this picture. The red and white combine perfectly. One could almost feel the cold. Bravo!
Contrast of red and white is fantastic! Idea is unique!
