It'sthe darkest time of year right now, but yesterday was so surprisingly bright. I finally made it out during the time it is still light, and was struck by how bright everything was. Everything was white - there is no snow yet- but white from frost, from the pale light the sun gave, shining from behind the all-white thin layers of clouds covering the sky. The air was cripsy and cold, and everything was so silent. I walked down to the harbour and saw almost no-one. In a photoshop-adjustable world, someone would have turned the saturation down and the brightness up, put the opacity of everything to 50%. To a paler shade than white.
