A Post in All Shades of Gray…
Lucky, lucky me… I am flying as we speak.
Many folks look on gray winter weather as a season to stay indoors, bundled in wool and down. Some with gray moods to match. Others are having weather suitable for summer wear, smiles and fun all around.
Here in the North, the trees have dropped their leaves bare, stealing away the color of summer and fall. I always have a rather happy outlook on winter as I see it as a constant ebb and flow of life, birds flying the ever-changing snowy landscape.
Since I am leaving the cold, blustery weather here on the Canadian border…
I will leave you with scenes from the stormy Buffalo waterfront, plus a few gray feathered friends.
Little birds at Niagara Falls State Park.
I am leaving my studio behind… to look and see what January brings on a topical island.
There really is beauty in January here though, but it just takes a little more effort to embrace it for most folks.
Late afternoon Buffalo Waterfront.
The wind lashes the face, yet I had breath-warmed wool keeping me warm as I took these images. A key to enjoying the season is dressing for it.
Early morning on the waterfront – a very gray day yet the sun was peeking through.
Snow buntings swirl through the biting winds, and crows mob a Snowy Owl on the icy shore. Nothing is boring if you empty your mind and fill it with that which surrounds you – even if the warmth beckons you indoors.
And then there was one…
See Garden Walk Garden Talk for my farewell post and a few good posts on birds. I hope to find wildlife to share in Maui. See you from the land of sun and beaches!!!
