Winter Has Come

And nobody knows for how long!

This morning I left home about a half hour later than usual because I had to take the car in for pre-winter-season servicing, which is always a fun time of year, but that’s not the point.

The point is the wonderful clear winter morning light – compare the darkness with the photos from the train station a few weeks ago. I’m determined to get that same shot tomorrow, though I have no idea if it will be overcast darkness, or the wondrous pearly dawn we had today. In any case, here’s the backyard all snowy, and the subtly dramatic colouring of the sky, heralding a sunny winter’s day:

This isn’t a theme with the moon again – but it’s interesting to see the same half moon at a different angle.

And the song I wanted by this band, Fight the Feeling, could not be found by me on youtube, but here’s something appropriate in theme by The Music.

    The winter light in the first shot is simply stunning and that gradient of warm-to-cool tones is wonderful. Dawn and dusk can be such beautiful and moving moments.

    A slight winter also here. Some light snow/condensated water vapour is on the ground.

    I love the colours in the first. (I seem to love colours, especially red and violet.)

    Every season is beautiful if you know how to see. Thanks, rq. That first shot is wonderful. I can hear the silence and feel the possibility.
