One of the places you might find something interesting to shoot after a snow around here is the sculpture garden behind the art museum. We didn't get much and by the time I arrived there was nothing on the statues. Still, they have their own interest.

This is called The Mountain by the French sculptor, Aristide Maillol. You can see the reason for the title in the way the right leg seems to arise from the earth and the crags formed by the left leg and knee are balanced by the peak running from the right hand through the torso to the top of the head.

Traveling tonight and onward tomorrow. Big change of scene by Wednesday afternoon.

We have one of his works here. I can see similarities.

A fine sculpture it is, even without snow.
