A poetic winter scene?

Tennis Ball What do you do when you spot a tennis ball on a snowy field? First you look around to make sure that no one can see you. Then you switch to the nifty fifty lens, and before you know it you are on all fours aiming the camera at the ball trying to get that very cool winter photo.

You are sure the ball was not for an other all fours to bring it back. Still a nice composition with minimal means.

Nice - the colours work really well.

rudyard kipling used to play snow golf with brightly colored balls when he lived in brattleboro.

You need a dog

I have heard about winter golf being played up North in Sweden. But have never seen it here.

And a dog needs it's ball Mo. There was a couple further up the field, but I don't think they had a dog with them.

Love it. Lemon on a plate of sugar.

Well, Steffe, all of that effort worked for you. Nice photo.

It's the incongruity that jumps out at me... brightly coloured ball associated with a summer sport sitting in a field of white snow.

But yeah, I'm guessing somewhere Fido is missing his ball...
