Silver skies…


1-21-13 winter tree

Winter skies can be remarkable. The sun arcs lower in the sky – and when combined with interesting clouds – the result can be quite striking. I’m very much a summer person – or at least warmer weather person – and I love that time of year when the trees begin to fill in again with a burst of fresh, lush green. However, now that I’m outdoors walking Oliver, I’m also becoming an almost reluctant admirer of the stark shapes and contrasts that this time of year brings. On one of our recent walks together, these high cirrus clouds framing the dark silhouetted branches caught my eye. I had my “real” camera with me this time with a 70-200mm lens attached, and I used that combination to make an image of what appeared to be silver skies.

  1. This is definitely a case of great minds traveling on the same track… with dogs. I took pictures last week while walking Marcos, in preparation for a post on winter shapes in trees and shrubs. Then this week, in a blog called Out Walking the Dog one that writes about nature in Manhattan and out on the Eastern end of LI,; the blogger posted just such an entry about winter “Bleak is Beautiful, I told her to take a look at my next post and I invite you as well. I should have it done by Tuesday.
    Oh, I almost forgot – great post!

I'd love to hear from you...
