Pines under the snow

I mounted together two pictures shoot at different times and slightly different angles of the same pine, in Japanese matsu covered with snow, yuki, that is a lovely name for girls as well in Japan. Photo taken in Kitakata in Januari 2005.

matsu mo miekere.
雪ふりて年の暮れぬる時にこそつゐにもみぢぬ松も見けれ。
Only at the end of the year / when the snow  spread / the white blanket / highlight to the eyes / the perennial green of the pine.
Thanks to great article of  professor Rossella Marangoni (in Italian)
