A study in contrast

A stone wall meanders over a hill in Wilmington

Stone wall in Wilmington

I like the way snow looks on stone walls. My eye is drawn to the contrast between the snow and the stone. In the top picture, the snow looks almost like it was drizzled over the stones like confectioner's glaze. In the bottom photograph, the snow highlights the shapes of the rocks.
For the contemplative viewer, these scenes offer a chance to muse about other contrasts, beyond light and dark.
