Winter Textures

Snow texture
The weather in every season impacts us in so many ways.  We often say we have had too much of this or that, as in snow and cold and ice.  When we’re in the middle of that weather fatigue it can be very difficult to see any beauty about it.
Some days, though, we can, if we take the time to look.  The texture of the snow in the afternoon sun is what we found last weekend.
Tree roots in snow
The contrasts in light and shadow here on the base of this tree mesmerized me.  Not just the snow texture, but also the bark, the skin of that tree in all it’s variations of gray and brown.
Red barn in winter
Not all barns are red anymore.  The color in contrast with the winter surroundings just made this scene pop for me.  And I want to walk up to it and touch that wood, feel the roughness on my hand… and take a look inside, maybe climb that ladder.  
                                                                                                         Care to join me?

  1. I love the faded, weathered red of that barn. And its unique and beautiful shape. A lovely winter image. Another good spot that I would like to see in all four seasons.

  2. Yes, wait for me, Deb, I'm coming with you! Wonderful textures – I love the way the snow has made designs in the nooks and crannies of the tree bark. The first thing that struck me about that barn is that it has a distinctly Midwestern look to it. No one would ever take it for a New England barn. I love old barns and find it funny that I've never really thought about that before. That weathered red is beautiful against the bleak wintry landscape.

  3. I for one am never tired of winter, but I do complain about summer! Your snow shots are beautiful and that red barn is absolutely perfect in the snow! I was just thinking of how much fun you will have exploring your new area! Missouri is a beautiful state!

  4. You make winter look lovely! The barn is just wonderful — the textures and lines contrast so well against the field with the snow. I'm missing a real winter now.
