Black and White Tuesday


Maybe it should be black and gray Tuesday.  



Anyway, here we have the current view from the front porch. 

 The leaves are gone which shows the trees in a different sort of beauty.  

It's that desolate type of beauty that I rather like.  I do enjoy the warmth and beauty of summer, but also what winter has to offer.  The changing of the seasons is something I look forward to.

"Cold blows the wind, the frozen rain and fleecy snow descend; for, freezing winter's come again, and so the year does end."  

The Farmers' Almanac

  6. Oh I totally agree with you...beauty at every stage. We are having a gray Tuesday here as well and I love it. Sometimes I prefer these kind of days...they are great for thinking and putting things in perspective for me. Sometimes the bright sunshine distracts me...am I weird or what???

  7. Nice shots- naked trees always look better in black and white. It's gray here, too. But I am determined not to be blah. Have a good one!

  8. gray is calming to me, too. until there's been no sun for too many days in a row, then it can be depressing. :)

  14. Trees without leaves in your picture bring a Swedish word to my mind that I don't know how to translate. So beautiful will have to do for now.

  26. Lovely picture. The changing seasons is what I miss most about liking where I do. I tend to lean toward winter as well.

  27. I like the bare trees as well. It's a completely different beauty, and very photogenic. Your photo represents this season very well.

  29. Sometimes, a monochrome photo tells a much better story than color. Nicely done.
