What I Saw. January 5, 2012

Today’s Roll-About beneath steel gray skies looked like an exercise in futility until I got westward to Williamstown, where a few views inspired me to get out into the wind and snow squalls and contort Elliot into action.  Here’s some of what I got.

Fences in a pasture:

A red barn in light wind-driven snow:

Those two had a bit of “tilt” to get the front-to-back focus I wanted, as well as an array of hand-held graduated filters.

This next one, though, was an impromptu portrait of a horse who came over to greet me, changing my plans and necessitating some hasty manual work:

What a sweetie, though he’d likely bite me if he heard me say that!  🙂

More later from today’s foraging.  I’m undecided as to whether they’ll be color or B&W, so give me a little while.

It has been a typical gray New England December day, but with a bit more snow than we’ve been having the last few years. The cattle are mostly gathered in barnyards, and the downed fences no longer seem to matter.


Their winter homes must seem to them like castles on the moors of our silent farm-scapes.


A glint of sunlight at twilight reminds us that the Gray Days are numbered, finite, necessary for the rejuvenation of our lives.
