Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast, snow, trees and trains!

WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. This time the challenge is to “share a picture that means CONTRAST to you!”.
Here’s a few photos. Taken within a few days. I captured the first ones on Thursday – the day named after the Old Norse God Thor. Thor was the son of Odin – and he is the God of all Gods. On Thursday we had what probably and hopefully was our last day of winter this season.

On Thursday morning it looked like this.

Thursday: On Thursday morning it looked like this.

During the weekend they chopped down the trees - working nights & early morning!

Saturday: During the weekend they chopped down the trees – working nights & early morning!

All the snow melted.

Sunday: All the snow had already melted (most of it was already gone by Friday).

Now the trees & the snow are all gone.

Monday: Now the trees & the snow are all gone.

  1. Contrast pics were really interesting, but what I wanted to say was I just love your … ok … something weird just happened! I was going to say I love your header of the camel … and now it’s suddenly disappeared!! Am I going mad??? I know I saw a camel! Please tell me I saw a camel!

    • “Then there was the time that the earth was ruled by trees. There were emperor trees and empress trees. All trees were royalty. Their roots sank deeply down into the ground, and their branches reached higher into the sky than the birds could fly. And the trees all communicated with each other, and all of them together made the decisions for the entire planet. Their authority went unquestioned for many thousands of years. They were wise and benevolent rulers, and the world prospered.

      But when the others came, they did not understand or recognize the power of the trees. They set up new systems that supplanted the trees and sapped their strength. And now the trees bleed rivers of blood down in the ground under our feet.

      There’s an ocean of blood in the core of the earth, and now we write on trees. We make furniture out of trees. We clean up kitchen spills with trees. We wipe our spotty behinds with trees. We put trees in our houses at Christmastime. The trees say nothing, because now they are weak. But they know that our time will be brief, that we will soon perish and the trees will rule again, and the earth will be strong and beautiful once more. So, you see, it’s not such a sad story after all.”

      – John S. Hall

  2. aww. the disappearance of the trees made me sad. 😥 glad you were able to capture them while they were there too.. 🙂

    • Actually someone in the neighbourhood started a petition to stop the chopping of the trees, but the trees lost… “The trees say nothing, because now they are weak.”
