Oh my aching eyes!

How they’re longing for some color.  Even more than usual for this time of year.  See, we’ve basically had a snowless winter.  It hasn’t snowed with accumulation since Halloween.  The extended brown stick season has sapped my enthusiasm and induced the need for color in a big way.  So, without further ado –

Wiggins Barn

Barn and Silo

In Good Company

See what I did there?  I snuck in a cemetery.  It’s a family plot and so wee.  I think I’l do a seasonal study of this location.  It’s got to be amazing at sunrise with snow.  Or in the spring when the foliage has all the tenderest shades of green.  And speaking of foliage…autumn’s color peak will be amazing here.  That tree to the right in the last shot is one of a few chestnuts and should make for a good specimen.  The clouds dispersed much faster than I thought they would when I shot this, but even in the harsh light it has some merit.

Anyway…that’s all I could find for color.  Things won’t begin to green up for at least 6 weeks and so the brown stick season continues…I don’t hold out much hope for snow, but you never can tell.  Nature is fickle.

    What a cure for the winter blahs! That’s a beautiful, huge barn. I’m fascinated with old cemeteries.

  2. LOVE that second shot, great perspective and composition. Our snowfall has been pathetic this year. We have not gotten more than 2 inches at once, and I am at the same point as you. I either want a real snow, or for winter to be over.
