Winter once more and "The road not taken"

Winter RoadThere has been a broad throwback from an uprising spring (with almost 10°C) to a winter wonderland. So I used a picture I shot on my way from Truppach to Bamberg last sunday to create a new header picture. I know it is quite dark, and I also tweaked the colour of the navigation, but there is also some light. Gonna take the way to the light ;-). Looking at this picture I see a lonely road and some distant woods. Road/wood/winter reminds me to a poem by Robert Frost, which I won't keep from you.

The road not taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

    *Dankeschön. Photocase hat es leider nicht so gefallen.. Naja als Header-Bild für die nächsten 2 Wochen sollte es reichen. Dann wirds was weniger schwermütiges geben.
