This really should have been published a couple of days ago, because it was taken on the first afternoon of this year. It was unusually warm, and had been from Christmas, which you can tell because the snow is completely gone. I guess this is why there was quite a bit of fog.
The grass on the shore in the foreground is green, the rest of the image is desaturated because of the fog. I think this is more of an autumn mood rather than winter, but what a poetic way to start the new year by showing that it is impossible to see far through the fog of time!
