Calendar 2012: Colours: October

The photo


January is the snowiest and frostiest month in winter especially in Russia. It was a frosty morning when I had a walk in the forest and took the picture . All trees were white: there was snow on the branches and hoarfrost on the tops of trees.

      Yeah, this photo is beautiful! It reminds me the first day of Canada's winter when i lied down on the snow with my love in last year. As soon as snow fell down, we went to the nearest forest and looking at the branches of the tree were covered snow and hoarfrost and felt the fresh air of winter, which was one of the beautiful memory in my life. So thanks for this awesome picture.
      i would like to comment the colour of this month, i have been believed that i do know more idioms which included the word blue. but in reality i do remember only one of them that is the FEELING BLUE. it means you fell not so good or upset etc, caused many reason health, work or may somebody's bad behaviour which makes you feel unhappy.

      This beautiful picture is an exact illustration to the poem of Alexandr Pushkin - "Winter morning":

      Cold frost and sunshine: day of wonder!
      The snow below the bluish skies,
      Like a majestic carpet lies,
      And in the light of day it shimmers.
      The woods are dusky. Through the frost
      The greenish fir-trees are exposed;
      And under ice, a river glitters.

      This photo is wonderful and the idea of taking it from under is so good , it reminds me about winter coming soon and makes me cold . winter here in Medea , the city where i work , is snowy and frosty .

      The blue colour represents calm and peace , like my name "Amane " in Arabic , it means safe .

      In my country , Algeria , we usually say "blue one" ,which means the person who is new in a job or academey and doesn't know more about his new experience , so his collegues laugh at him and call him blue , like our new collegue here "Redhouane " .

      The photo above is absolutely stunning. The colors of the trees follows the climate wherein white symbolizes freshness and coolness of the air. The sturdy and peak trees signifies our ambitions in life, that one must not stop aiming high and should not cease trying to reach our goals in life.
