Snowy scenes in Second Life

Back at the beginning of the month, I managed to drop-in to Kaelyn Alecto’s and Maxxster’s It All Starts with a Smile, which I last visited in May, when things didn’t appear to bode well for the region’s future. Fortunes rapidly improved, however, and right now It All Starts with a Smile offers a winter scene of composite parts, with a small village / town element on one side of the region, and more rural scenes across the rest of the island.

It’s an interesting mix of scenes, with the little town area offering small shops, a coffee-house and a light-hearted touch to car registration (license) plates – this place is clearly popular with those of an IT persuasion :-). If you’re tired of all the snow and cold of the northern hemisphere, you can pop into the IASWAS travel agency and book a vacation in warmer climes …

While the snow has been cleared from the town area, elsewhere in the region it lies deep and blankets the landscape, offering-up many opportunities for the SL photographer. Fortunately, the roads have been cleared, so you needn’t worry too much about deep snow – although the tree-lined paths make for a relaxing walk.

The landscape naturally lends itself to a lot of tweaking with windlight, as some interesting effects can be obtained. I settled for trying out some monochromatic efforts, or – as with the top image – what are more unusual colours for me to settle upon.

If you like your Second Life uncluttered, but with a rich feel of winter and plenty of snow to enjoy, you may well find it very worthwhile hopping over to It All Starts with a Smile and having a look around. And if it gets too cold outside, don’t forget there are at least a couple of places where you can get a hot drink and warm-up again!
