Overcast – 212

January 22, 2011

It seems like the only pictures I am taking right now are of snow. Maybe that’s because we have already had 5 snow storms and more snow then we normally get for a winter. This week we are looking at sub-zero temperatures and, possibly they say, another snow storm. UNCLE!  I live in Southern Connecticut and this is so not typical. Anyway that is why I am taking a lot of photos of snow. Outside that is all there is! I took this after yesterday’s storm when it was sunny behind me and overcast where I was looking. This is the “dog”/guardhouse that I photographed in Glowing. The lights are now off but it still makes for a nice photo op.

Frame made using Essentials 3.

    clouds will come and clouds will go, the same goes for the seasons. Also winter has it’s beautiful faces, you show it on your picture.

    I like the cloudy sky with the bits of blue showing through. Even though I know you’re tired of snow, this is a lovely picture.

    I think snowy winters can give us the most beautiful scenes to photograph. But, believe me, I know how tiresome it can be to cope with it all. This photo is lovely with the partially cloudy sky and the nice light of the little building.

    I love how the little light there is makes that building glow…very nice frame too!

    For a winter picture the lighting makes the image very warm.

    For a winter scene you captured plenty of color, great image!

    The composition is excellent. I’m impressed with the exposure on the snow–it’s so easy for that to be blown out. And the sky looks like something from the Hudson River school of painting.
    PS I’m in central Connecticut and pretty desperate to find subjects that don’t include SNOW! I’m dreading the mid week storm that’s looming and worried that we’ve got two more months of snow season!

    You have to go with what you have, and you did a fine job here making the seen optimistic. The lighting and the sky is sweet.

      Scene, not seen! Sorry!

    Love to see your snow scenes even though we have plenty of it too! Your framing really makes for a nice composition. You know the snow will be gone before too many months and then there won’t be any for months and months so make the most of it now! And you have!

    Great color and lighting in this one, despite all the snow. (I just realized snow is a 4 letter word). I have been feeling the same way about all the snow and cold. Just had the 3 dogs out for their last out of the night and it was 0 degrees. I’m in north Jersey, but I think you guys have gotten hit with even more snow than us and I’m in Jersey’s snow belt!

    From a midwesterner this is a nice New England Winter scene but I’m anxious for Spring shots!!

    Lovely image, picture postcard perfect!

    The light is really beautiful in this, great sky.
