Can't get enough of winter? This snow landscape art photo print will vividly remind you of season's joys outside and the warm within, by making both opposites meet in its simple and captivating black-and-white display.

It is New Year's Eve day in 2012. That is, 2012 is coming to an end, and 2013 is about to start.

The short week from Christmas to year's end is what Germans call "between the years". This is a strange stretch of no-time, like nowhere's equivalent in the calendar. Many spend it for their remaining annual leave, taking a rest from the holiday season and its funny rituals, family reunion, gift giving, ridiculous food overdose.

There is little happening in the business world, and in the world as a whole, luckily, we all seem to take a deep breath before the next round of time will claim our attention, just a couple of days away, in no time at all.

This feeling of being time-less is in the air. The void of the landscape in front of you and its apparent standstill enclose you the more you look.

After a while, you notice that it is snowing. Then you may spot two small figures in the distance, beyond the frozen lake, walking along the forest edge to some unknown destination where it is warm and vibrant.

It has to be warm if it is worth the effort, and so the photograph conveys this warmth hoped for, not the cold pictured. Just see!

In the winter time we go
Walking in the fields of snow;

Where there is no grass at all;
Where the top of every wall,

Every fence, and every tree,
Is as white as white can be.

James Stephens, White Fields

Taking a look

Where in the world…

The mountain resort village of Lenzerheide/Lai is situated a half-an-hour drive by car or public bus away from Chur, the principal town in the Swiss canton of Grisons and the oldest settlement in Switzerland.

The village at 1,450 m/4,800 ft altitude is an all-year tourist destination, especially in winter, when its surrounding ski slopes attract many a visitor.

The local area is Romansh-speaking, that being the least used national language in Switzerland [which has four of them altogether].

The nearest international airport is that of Zurich, 150 km/90 mi, or two to three hours to the north. On the whole, if you got the time and can afford the trip, there is no difficulty whatsoever to get here, no matter by what means of transportation.

When in town, head to the lake and place yourself in its southwest corner. Have your camera ready!

Or, save yourself hassle and travel, and buy this understated snow landscape photo print.

"All well and good, but why would I?"

A very good question! Consider the following, for example.

Cool, and calm

There is a very calm feeling to the picture. There is no wind and apparently no sound at all, just snow falling on trees and the lake at rest, in silence.

The image doesn't ooze the chill it depicts. Quite the contrary, it conveys the warmth, in all meanings, inexplicably. This makes it such a great addition to a bedroom interior, always a difficult area for suitable décor.

Likewise, its monochrome appearance will make an advantage in "the less distractions, the better" kind of spaces—an office, a business reception or hallway, a library, a studio, or – again – a bedroom.

Streamlined design and plain, dark furniture will beautifully complement this piece.

I want something elegant and subtle at my place!

Sure value

What makes a value of an object?

Sure, the work and materials put into it matter big way—see above. However, they are but of superficial value. We still may want to have such luxuries around, but it would be a pity if they were the only things to surround us.

There is a simple explanation. We cannot relate to this kind of objects. They may remind us of their price, but money alone is a rare emotional stimulus.

A piece of art, on the other hand, creates an immediate reaction, one that is more than just "want-have". The impression art makes on us is then often able to evolve. An object of art can, and will grow on us.
