(catharsis = purification, renewal, reborn of the soul and spirit through art)
Second image in my Catharsis series.
Another glance over this extreme white, over a scene so pure that it makes you forget how the world looks like in reality. Standing there, in the middle of this snow storm, I had a very powerful sensation of ease and a “happy for no reason” kind of feeling. For a moment I had the impression that I don’t care about anything else in the world than the scene in front of me and I’m wondering if that was produced by the scene itself or it was something that had to do more with how I interpreted and lived the moment. Any way it might have been, it was such a great feeling that I didn’t want to leave that place till I ended up completely frozen (me, camera and all my filters).
…and now I should tell you about the mulled wine that I had afterwards to help me warm up, but that’s for another story :)
