Good Weather or Poor

Good weather or poor, remaining indoors is not an option when one has livestock, and while one can pass their time in the coziness of indoors, the conditions outside will be what they will be for as long as Mother N needs it to be so.  We are into our seventh day of heavy, grey cloud, and the fifth day of snow or rain.   The whole place is a mucky, snowy mess. We just all want to feel dry again.

Looking out the window the morning did not appear to be much different from the last six mornings of grey and snow. Still, I heeded a small nudge to take the camera along during my morning walk. It did not disappoint. It was a noble, calm, flat grey morning with snow quietly falling. It felt as though we momentarily stepped into the monochrome world of photographer Ansel Adams. I was compelled to find something to photograph.

Snow cover and open water are contrasting features here on the Canadian prairie.


About an hour later, I was trudging out to feed guardian dogs. While there was no orb of sun to be  seen in the sky, it was shedding what light it could through the grey cover. The guardian dogs were beautifully poised and so colourful against the monochrome scene, no matter where they were situated on the snowy landscape.

Happy Thanksgiving indeed, good weather or poor.

  5. Fantastic, very glad to hear the photos are well liked. They took my breath away when they uploaded and I saw what they were. Might be print worthy I think.
