Last Thursday, February 22, Nancy Merrill announced her weekly challenge of ‘Your Weather Today’.
It was perfect for me because that morning I had run to the windows and seen something that Vancouverites often don’t see in the winter: SUN together with SNOW!
The snow had turned our familiar green landscape into black and white, making the familiar unfamiliar.
Unfortunately life got in the way and I never got around to posting the photos. But this week’s photo challenge at the Daily Post is to ‘share a photo that takes a familiar scene and makes it look and feel like something out of this world.’
To further heighten the unreality I have turned them into black and white, stripping any vestige of colour out of them.

Our ‘sun’ deck after the snow in Vancouver.Tree branches outlined in snow with the sun shining through. February 23 was even more amazing, with snow falling all day.
I went down to the Granville Island and caught one of the little ferries over to downtown. Vancouver looking very out of this world. In black and white the snow almost looks like white sand!It even continued to snow that night. This one I didn’t turn into black and white as the camera seemed to be having some fun itself, interpreting the lighting very oddly!
