Color Of Winter #1

      
Please click on the photo for a better image...

Last year I started a series of photos that I called “Color Of Winter”. I did so because I would hear so many people say that they didn’t like taking photos in the Winter because there was no color to be seen. So, I took it as a challenge and started the series just to show that there are plenty of colors in the Winter time; you just have to be looking in order to see them.

Now that Winter is here again, I’m going to run another series of Winter photos with color. This time, however, with a twist. If you have a photo, somewhere on the Internet, that you feel would make a good example of a “Color Of Winter” photo, leave a message in the comments field with a link to it and share I’ll share it with others.

I do reserve the right not to publish any photos that I believe would not properly fit in with the topic. So, leave those links and we’ll see what happens and if this will be something with which we can have some fun… Smile

First Winter Snow

Photo taken in my neighborhood on Christmas Eve. I’ve always felt that good photos can be taken anywhere. The problem, however, is that you must be looking in order to see photo opportunities everywhere. This is an example of that thought.

This is my world and you are welcome to it... Smile

Entrance To Country Living

Sometimes what seems to be isn’t what it is. What looks like an entrance to a country estate is actually an entrance to a mobile home court.

But, I still think it’s a cool scene… Smile

The Bed By The Window

      
Please click on the photo for a better image...

In the morning early I awake to the light.
 
The mind says arise, my body says why, as the bed by the window is safe and warm.
 
For peace it is the place to stay. Why should it be empty all of the day?
 
Hours of many in the dark you are there. Your eyes closed. You are safe and warm. You know not what as time goes by.
 
But sleep revives and, though safe and warm, up you go for the day beckons and there is much to do.
 
You look behind and the light is right, so you capture that moment in an instance of time when life, again, begins anew.
 
You leave it as it is for hope reigns that once again the covers will hold you safe and warm, and sleep takes over as the world goes by; never stopping, never ending.

Knowing full well, though day or night, in the bed by the window shall you lie.
 
Safe and warm as time goes by.

Looking East from inside a Lock on the C&O Canal. I wondered what it must have been like when this was full of water…

Sitting alone, waiting, waiting for someone to come along and take it home.

"I've seen alot. I've done alot, and now I'm willing to share it all with you. Won't you come and take me home?"
