Zero Degree, Zero Bullying

Winter can be a difficult and harmful experience for many plants, animals and people. Just like winter, bullying is a negative and harmful experience for the victims of bullies. It can cause psychological, social or physical harm. Seek help if you are being bullied. The effects of winter and bullying can be partly alleviated by warmth and kindness.​​​​​​​

Photo taken at the beginning of winter in Lençóis National Park (Brazil), also known as "bedsheets of Maranhão".

As it is close to the Equator (latitude of 2.76°S), temperatures in this region exceed 20 degrees.

There are no mountains with snow-capped peaks – so typical of the northern hemisphere – but rather, immense white dunes that hide small lagoons.

Que sont les saisons des années sinon vos propres pensées qui évoluent ? Le printemps est un éveil dans votre cœur, et l'été vous révèle votre fertilité. Quant à l'automne, n'est-il pas votre passé qui chante une berceuse à ce qui subsiste en vous de l'enfance ? Et l'hiver, je vous le demande, n'est-il pas une somnolence enceinte des rêves des autres saisons ?  - Khalil Gibran

Hair ice

Hair ice is a somewhat uncommon type of ice that forms on dead wood and takes the shape of fine, silky hair. I was lucky enough to photograph it during a January hike in Southeast Bavaria. The famous meteorologist Alfred Wegener described hair ice on wet dead wood in 1918, assuming some specific fungi as the catalyst. In 2015, the fungus Exidiopsis effusa was identified as key to the formation of hair ice.

​​​​​​​It was taken at my local temple in December. I noticed that the Hanachozu (water basins decorated with flowers at the entrance of the temple that are used to wash hands) included Christmas-themed colours and baubles. It is quite interesting to see how Japanese Buddhism is very open to other traditions. 
I picked this picture because it felt warm and happy, perfect for this time of year.

The Winter of A Man

'"Now Is The Winter Of Our Discontent," Shakespeare Wrote.
Perhaps. But The Winter Of The Life Of A Person Can Be So Much More.
Power, Dignity And Gravitas Earned By Years Of Living.
Less Striving To Win The Rat Race Every Day,
And More Understanding Of How The Real Maze Fits Together.
Less Ego Imperative And More Personal Peace.

Not True For All. Not True For Any, Every Day. But Perhaps A Goal To Strive For.
And An Achievement To Be Respected.

Newmarket in England is the Racehorse capital of the world for breeding and training; the stadium racetrack is in the background.

It was early morning; the training field was covered in frost and freezing. I was alone and walking away from the jockey when I heard the thud of the gallop behind me; I turned and quickly took the shot.

It was a wow moment!

The sunlight on the horse is rich in colour, and the face of the jockey is chiselled with a focus.
