I love you straightforwardly without complexities or pride

‘Minimalist’ is the title of the Weekly Photo Challenge.  And for me it is a real challenge – an everyday challenge … I have a daily notion that I would like to lead an uncluttered life and yet even clearing my mind often seems to be an impossible hurdle.

This image, taken on a deep winters day between Mauriac and Riom es Montagnes in Le Cantal of a tree naked and stark against it’s monochrome background was captured in full colour, not edited and yet has the purity of a black and white.  Perhaps winter should be the season to rehearse my inner minimalist …


PS:  The title is from Pablo Neruda (Poem XVII – I Do Not Love You)

  2. That kind of pictures make me long to winters! Until I realize that winters in Belgium are often just rainy, cold, strange days, that is 😉

    • One of the reasons I moved here was a fair guarantee of snow and ice … after years in England I have had my fill of wet winters 😉

  3. Very beautiful! There is something about snowy landscapes that is just so naturally minimalist.
