Photographer's Note

It's been snowing recently all over Turkey.
I was lucky to capture this "carpet"
before the pattern was spoiled
by later passers-by.

Normally foot-prints are not so visible on snow.
In Akçakoca district [ak-CHA-ko-dja]
asphalt is often hidden under a layer of clay
brought by trucks from the nearby construction sites.
The fresh layer of snow when stepped on
mixes with the dirt so that
the foot-prints contrast the snow.

There are foot-prints, tyre-prints
and a pavement border of a mixed texture.
I'd like to have this pattern on my T-Shirt.
Please, if anyone produces T-Shirts,
send me a dozen or two with this pattern ;)

* Here's another my shot of snow in Cappadocia which looks like salt;
* and a shot by Daria Dudko (shymelka) with snow from St. Petersburg;
* One more simple but a very nice pattern Winter is leaving ;) by Ekaterina Krasnikova (jaspe).
* Snow taken by Arthur Tuluche several hours earlier, but uploaded a year later. Really worth seeing!
