Grr...gnash of teeth...

Well, me and the camera went out and neither of us saw anything at all interesting, even to us, to take a picture of.  You got'cher brown leafless trees and limbs sticking up.  You got'cher brown dead grass.  You got'cher cleaned out and sleeping for the winter flower beds.  Then there are the sere brown and lifeless landscapes that almost have the word "cold" stamped on it.  No snow, no ice, no anything.  Nature is asleep and renewing itself for March and onward.  Until then, it's birdies if they stay still long enough.  I found a so-called babbling brook.  I thought it looked good where I took the picture but though you would think I'd learn after at least seven attempts, no, it's really not picturesque. Wishing doesn't make it so.  Nope.

So...another sunny day (I am most grateful for that) and frigid with not a lot to capture on the camera.  Maybe next time.

  1. Well....Bah ! Humbug!
    It was 11 Degrees here this morning and I needed to " do something" so not to work on my basement! So, off I went to take pictures (which I'll share in a video later on)
    I was out for about 3 hours and think I got a "few keepers".

  4. I kind of like the starkness of the winter brown. Love the patterns the bare tree branches make, either a clear blue sky or dappled clouds for a background. Love the dried grasses and weeds, they are great winter flowers and like you said the winter birds.

    Was out today, probably took over 100 pics.

  5. Won't be long (hopefully) and you'll get pictures of blossoms and buds.

  6. When I first started taking pictures, I went on a trip one time and found the weather incongruent with the pictures I had in mind. After the trip, another photographer told me the pictures were there, I just didn't see them.

    Of course, one could work on still lifes or natural lighting used indoors just as well....

  7. It was 16 degrees here this morning. Almost froze my tuche off reaching for the newspaper; even Sam backed up and ran for the warm kitchen. We had about 5 min of sun today but I didn't care. I ran errands for Lee and then spent the day with her and did her nails while I was at it. Luckily she had a half bottle of wine in the fridge ;)
    XOXOXO

  8. Haven't been able to see him, but the last 2 mornings a bird has been chirping outside our windwow here, just out of site when you look out. You go out and its gone. Would love to get a picture of it.

  9. I can totally sympathize, when I say things are grey I think I meant to say white, brown and dead! We get a warm up which means a diminishing of white but a resurgence of brown and barren branches...sigh. My one hope is that after a week in the forties I'll be able to walk again at last...that would be a highlight of things at this point!

  10. Haha, it's true, everything looks brown and dead here too. I understand you don't feel like taking any pictures. Well, maybe dead trees look nice with the setting sun behind. Just a thought. Still, I can't wait spring when everything is so pretty and alive!

  11. We had a little sun for my girl and then cloudy most of the day.
    We do get to see birds feeding, means a lot.

  12. Sorry about your photo ops, or lack thereof. The constant gray and brown does become a bit monotonous after a while. We have snow forecast for tonight and tomorrow...up to 5 inches possible. Sure do hope they're wrong.
