Winter Wonderland in Como

A series of photos taken in a cold winter at the public gardens in Como.

During a very cold winter day, I walked at the public park of my city to take some photographs in the snow. The bare trees, the great amount of snow and maybe the coating of my Pentacon 29/2,8 attached to my Praktica MTL 5b have allowed me to obtain near monochrome images, mainly with only brown and white colors, and a slight warm color dominants.

Here you can see a view toward the dome of the cathedral, with a bare tree in the foreground.

Even the monument to the anti-fascist resistance takes on a special charm in the snow!

White and brown dominate the picture: these are the classic colors of winter. Who said that everything is without colors in the cold season?

The day was very cold, more than 10 degrees below zero celsius. The carousel is closed … just a dog was walking in the snow.

The Fun Park is waiting for the thaw: it is waiting for the children in the spring!

On the wall there is a single trace of some summer love.

Meanwhile, there is always someone in search of food … with this cold weather is hard to find fish in the lake!

Turning the look to the left, I remain fascinated by the beautiful Villa Olmo in the snow! I take often photos at the gardens of my home town, and every season, I appreciate the variations of colors of the trees and nature — from the bright green of the spring, the strong summer light with its striking contrast, to the yellow of the dead leaves in autumn, until the brown dominant color in the winter.

Returning home, I took a picture of this seaplane: its white and brown colors are right in tune with this cold winter! All these photos were taken with a Fuji Superia 400 film (fresh, not expired). I didn’t used filters and I developed the film in C41 without cross-processing.

    At -10 C, I would still consider it a winter paradise, beautifully done!
