Sandy, it turns out, was not a tease. She came with force and unfortunately, she indeed put out. Here in Ohio, she brought a spit of snow, some wind and gobs of rain. For all the east coasters out there, speedy recovery thoughts from me to you.
It was hard to find inspiration on such a blue and dreary day. But, despite the rain, wind and snow, I did happen to find a little color out there today. I found mostly red with bits of yellow, magenta and orange tagging along.

I really like how the hydrant’s color is echoed by the red leaves in the last photo! Sharp shot!

The second photo is a winner for me. A snow tinged open field lined to the left by a line of trees. Yes ,it looks dreary but that scene to me is quite pretty.
Thanks! glad you like.
I like your black and white with the red leaf. That is a great look!!!
I like your sprinkles of color…
Thank you sarsm
Even on such a dark day you have really captured the beauty! 🙂
love the last one the most.nice shots seth!
Ever since discovering your blog I visit daily, to see your beautiful Ohio as seen through your camera lens. I love all your photos. The one of the fence is beyond words.
Thank you for posting such inspiring, beautiful, and lovely images.
Thank you so much for your kind words.
I needed these beautiful photos. I didn’t get hit hard, mostly fallen trees and the house is intact. But my family in the rockaways got hit hard as did so many others. I turned off the news its so depressing. My heart goes out to everyone, hoping for speedy recovery for everyone and safety…things can be replaces..people cannot. I spent a big chuck of my day trying to hunt down the street cats. Little fur-balls are resilient. Thanks for you beautiful pictures!
Glad to hear you weathered Sandy. Hopefully all your friends and family will have an easy recovery.
Thank you for following my blog. I look forward on seeing more of your posts!
I like the b/w and red leaf, too. beautiful post!
Thank you a lion a boat.
Sorry Ali on a boat 😉
Here’s hoping for a few more days of balmy fall weather before winter is here in all her white clothing! Glad you’re doing well after Sandy.
Snow in October? Brrr. Love the photos of the single red leaf
I love the last one, very nice
and the one with the trees, I cannot believe how much it looks like where I live in the “fens” of East Anglia UK
Thank you eevee.
Been so long since I was in Ohio and then it was only London. But just loving your images ..
We have same weather in Russia several days ago!
Alex, really? What did you have? It’s probably already winter there right!
There’s a snowfall all the day today. Looks like a first steps of winter, although 31 October seems to be too early for that season for me.
yes it does! What do you call it in Russian when it warms up for a few weeks in between fall and winter? We call it Indian Summer here in the States.
We call this “babje leto” (grandmother’s summer)
Nice! 🙂 Well I hope you have a babe leto soon. 🙂
I think it “was” already 😀
We have that small season of warmth two weeks ago.
Hi – thank you for the like. I look forwards to keeping up with your posts – am a bit of a photography admirer and I so wish that I had the knack myself!
Thank you. I am sure you take wonderful photos.
I love the last one. But they are all lovely.
From all the reports we are seeing here, it sure looks like Sandy left quite a path of destruction. Hopefully, the clean up and recovery doesn’t take too long. Lovely photos!
Thanks Ali and I hope it doesn’t take long either.
Kudos to you for finding something positive in Sandy.It was a huge storm. I live west of Toronto and we had horrid winds through the night and loss of power for a few hours. I’ll be doing a blog entry about the storm within the week — trying to find something — anything– to laugh about! Loved your photos…you certainly have a good eye for color and perspective.
Thanks again Laurie.
I like the close-up of the fence. You always know how to take awesome pics. 🙂
I don’t know what having a huge storm/hurricane/etc is like, and I kind of hope I never will… 😛 Anyhow, I guess that’s all from me. 🙂
Thank you for your comments. 🙂
Anytime, mate 😀
The last one is really beautiful, simple but great colors ! nice work !
Thanks deoda. 🙂
I can’t believe ya’ll had snow. Sandy has been a real menace. Beautiful photos. Can’t wait till it snows here. Happy Halloween!
Thanks! Yes but it was just a spit of snow 😉
Quite possibly my favorite series of photos.
really like your pics! especially the purple one 🙂
Love your ‘leaf’ shots! Reminds me of the late 1980s when I used to hand color my black and white photos. Times sure have changed! 🙂
Wow, really? Interesting. Thanks.
Really like the atmosphere resulting with the black and white with “spots” of color.
Thank you. Glad you liked them.
Beautiful pics, love the contrast of gray with a touch of color, like the old black and white photographs back in the day they used to add color by hand.
Wow, sounds tiring! Thanks.
I love how you found a way to make a dreary day beautiful. Well done!
Thanks tasty pot.
I just love your pictures !!:)
Thank you. I am glad you enjoy them.
red on a blue day….my fav!
Thanks Heart of Sedona Weddings.
love the last picture.. it makes me feel like there’s a hidden meaning there.. stay bright even when you are surrounded by gray..
I love the very last one. It reminds me of myself. The saw thumb. The one not to fit in. Yet contempt in their own device. Poor lil’ guy.
I was thinking of you when I took the photo. 😉
Great shots Seth. Love the last one, very artistic.
Glad you like. Red is my favorite color.
Beautiful pictures! Love the red leaf : )
Thanks again! 🙂
I was trying to explain to my Photoshop class the power behind b&w with one color. Next time, I’ll simply show them your picture.
Thanks 😉 Glad I can help.
Beautiful photos and talent! – Thanks for sharing!
