Four Seasons - my 100th picture on TN :-)

LOOK AT MY WORKSHOP, TOO :-)

I'm happy to live where I live. I love Poland for its four seasons.

I wrote long note about Four Seasons, too long in fact :-) So I must took only winter and summer parts and include it with workshop pictures.

I'm very sorry that my English isn't good enough to let me write exactly what I feel. But I'll learn and at next opportunity [maybe next year ;-)] I'll write it better.

So, hundred pictures posted, I learned much for three months with you, met many new friends from all around the world and spended many happy hours here on TN. I want to thank Adam and Robert for TN and all my friends for joy of watching beautiful photos and learning many new things. And of course for yours friendship and words! I hope you will enjoy my next 100 :-)

Jubilee bonus - in my workshop you can see two alternative version of Four Seasons. First is kitschy as hell ;-) Second is VERY GOOD because it included Portrait of Big Artist ;-))))) And rest of the note is there.
Thank you all once again!!!

I was born 19th of june, almost in summer solstice, when night is shortest and day is longest. I love summer! Long days, heat, sun, smells of nature... When ground almost groan under heat waves, when hot air blur landscape when go up, when sunlight saturate sky and you can see only two colours - green on earth and blue on sky. And summer's evenings - just love it. Heat decrease, after colorful sunset grow dusk, ground become takes breath. At that time is magical moment - suddenly civilization tired of heat and brightness fall silent. For few minutes earth rest. And then mist crawls from distant fields and frogs become chanting. Darkness falls and stars rise on sky. And night-scented stock starts smell. And this is smell of Polish summer together with smell of wet grass and soil. This is dream time for me. To sit in garden, to look at stars, to smell all scents of summer, to hear chanting frogs and crickets.

Now winter rules in Poland. Snowy and windy, with temperatures below 0C degrees. As you know I hate this season. But winter has got adventages - everything turns white and clean, winter sunsets have got very special colour - salmon which sometimes turns bloody red or violet. Winter nights are very quiet - even in big city. People go to bed earlier, darkness fall about 17PM, home has got special meaning in this time. I like to sit late in night and look out via window - snow, stars, people hurrying home. And calm over all world. Winter is also time for beautiful ice crystals forming on leaves or twigs, white landscapes and sun sparks reflected in icicles. And don't forget about Christmas - one of very special day in whole year. But best of all is that winter ends and then spring comes!
