De Neige et de glace

“De Neige et de glace”, Fischboedle, Alsace, 2015.

The Fischboedle was originally something less than a pond until it was modified in the 19th century by the Hartmann, a very powerful industrialist family who owned most of the valley of Munster in the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. The adjustment aimed to transform it in a small lake that could serve as a stock of fishes, hence the name: Fischboedle meaning “fish-swamp”.

I suppose that people who don’t know that place will never be able to understand how this picture is weird: come here in winter when there isn’t snow and you’ll find a very sinister place with pines and waters dark as charcoal, stripped trees and bare rocks, but with snow it looks so calm and nice, nearly comfy.
