December Views. December 4, 2008

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

The past few weeks have been mostly cloudy, with poor light being the predominant visual element.  If it snowed, it would accumulate in dingy sheets beneath lightless pewter skies; if the sun broke through, it illuminated a brown and gray world.

But if you take enough photos of that stuff, some are gonna come out better than others, and here they are.

Mt. Greylock:


I’d been working on the east side of the mountain, and scooted around the north end to get this shot at day’s end.

The moon is up from mid-morning into the early night.  This is a four o’clock shot:


Here’s day’s end at Lake Onata in the Berkshires:


…as the  sun sets behind New York’s  Taconic Mountains:


And that’s that.

The ones you took certainly came out beautifully. This is an impressive series.

Thanks, Bobbie. They’re culled from dozens of clunkers. I’m glad you find what’s left to be worthwhile. 🙂

“Brown Greylock Small” is gorgeous. That’s the kind of thing I try to capture, and the kind of composition I like to paint.

I actually thought of you when I took it. Your painting is so heartfelt, and these had that light. It’s yours to do what you want with.

Oooooo. Would you e-mail me a larger format of it?

Steve, check your mail; if you didn’t get it, give me a shout back and I’ll try again. 🙂

Just found your blog through MadPriest, and what a small world it is! It is wonderful to find so many beautiful photos of my home in Western Mass.! I grew up in the Berkshires, and miss those mountains dearly. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos — I’m sure to be perusing through your blog for days to come. Peace to you, and Happy New Year!

Suzer, welcome! Glad you like the photos, and I can’t help it, they just pass through my camera and plop out here. 🙂

Georgia is a tad different though, isn’t it?

And hey, what’s the MadPriest connection? My link-back feature is strangely disabled, so I never know if people have mentioned something I posted, which I’m sure makes me look like an ungrateful cad.

Anyway, welcome, and do come back!
