White as snow - Bianco come la neve

Music: White As Snow by U2 [tny.gs]
And as the eye is the best composer, so light is the first of painters. There is no object so foul that intense light will not make beautiful. And the stimulus it affords to the sense, and a sort of infinitude which it hath, like space and time, make all matter gay.

E come l'occhio è il migliore compositore, così la luce è il primo dei pittori. Non c'è oggetto così ripugnante che la luce intensa non possa rendere bellissimo. E lo stimolo che essa produce sui sensi, e quella sorta di immensità che essa possiede, come lo spazio e il tempo, rendono gioiosa tutta la materia.

(“Nature”, Chapter III “Beauty”, Ralph Waldo Emerson)

      I like this very much Mimmo. You give a feeling of great distance and space in the cold landscape, and yet it is a very optimistic and personal picture. Solitude is very beautiful for some, disturbing for others.
