Inspiration from the poetry for those times when you’re simply out of things to photographing.

Too little sunlight at the dark winter days puts you at risk of depression, which is called season affective disorder (SAD). So there could be objective reasons why you’re out of things. You need to care of yourself and maybe to visit a therapist who knows everything about antidepressants and light therapy.
And you can help yourself by receiving inspiration from the poetry.

Here’s a wonderful poem “Blue Winter” by Robert Francis:
“Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how for.
You know the bluejay's double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star”.

Do you notice that your winter images have so many shades of blue? You might want to find the shades of blue for ice, snow, sky… and illustrate this beautiful poem by your own photographs.

Thank you for reading!
