Bärenwalde, Germany, January 2011
Yesterday we drove through Moritzburg and the forest. It has been snowing on and off in the last few days, there is no thick layer of snow, but a thin one covering the fields, while the trees are decorated with white lines of frost. Like in a fairy-tale. Outside a very small village there were these beautiful black horses. They didn’t seem to feel the cold (only -2 degrees Celsius, anyway). They were running around and playing in their “yard”. Later we saw that there were 2 other horses with them, but these two black ones were so fascinating and so beautiful to watch them.
I had to zoom in order to take pictures of them, but I like how it came out. The grainy texture, in some places being detectible even some blurriness, but I like the contrast it makes with the compact, black shapes of the two horses. I also like the almost monochrome created by the winter light that makes everything seem in shades and tints of blue.
