I look across the landscape that is my life. At times, I see gray with hints of color. The color seems to struggle. Reds, blues, greens and yellows all represent possibility and are all fighting to be seen. They have been hidden, buried deep and almost gone. Often they burst forward, bright and beautiful, only to be pushed into submission by negative thoughts or bad news. Yet, they come back. They are a resilient group. Tonight, they are dim. Tomorrow, I’m hiring a painter.

Always look forward to your pics, but this one tops them all!!! The 3rd one down is my fave of all of your work. It is perfect.
Thanks sock monkey. Glad you like these.
3rd one for me too! Great atmospheric pic.
The last one grabbed me this time.
Thanks! Glad you like that last one.
Standing alone under the vast land, I remembered the red paint on the walls of a small house, that was lonely as I am today. The vast fields, the sky and the trees , bring back pleasant memories ..I close my eyes and see..the red house its near me 🙂
Lovely. Thanks for your words.
thank you and welcome
I love the little red shed. Its so pretty. And the red trim of the house. Would never think of painting something that color, but it looks really amazing. Awesome pictures as always Seth!
Thanks so much. Glad you enjoy them. Hope all is well with you.
The way you use color areas against more faded areas is great. These almost look like like black & white photos that have been hand colored. Nice!
I wanted to drop a note to let you know that I’ve mentioned
you, nominated you as an inspirational blogger. Wonderful posts that inspire poems.
Thanks so much Gwendolyn.
Sorry…that was a lame comment, but it’s late and I’m tired and that was all my brain could think of. I had to say something, though 🙂
True. Nice is enough, Thanks.
I really like the barn pictures. Especially the last one! Awesome!
Thanks so much. 🙂 🙂
Fascinating pictures and words.
I think that we all can relate. Each day in effect is blank screen, waiting for us to color it.
Very evocative photos. You might photograph in à similar way to mayself; on feeling or intuition.
Have a colorful new day.
Barb, very true. Thanks so much.
Makes me want to live in the country. I love the barn pictures.
Despite being logged in to WordPress, your site has me logged out so I can’t press the like button. Needless to say, I liked your post. I’ve had this with a few other sites. Very frustrating. 🙂
Wonder why? humm… Thanks for leaving a comment. 🙂
Wonderful concept! Nice……nice!
White is always tomorrows blue 🙂 Nicely done here
Thanks Arnold. 🙂
Its always worthwhile dropping by 🙂
I love how the pic is grey and then color to give the pic life! Totally awesome!! Wished I knew how to do that!
Thanks Lisa. There are several different programs you can use to do this affect. I use FXStudio.
The photos of the red barns and the wintery trees and sky are excellent. They’d be great blown up. No.5 and the last one are my favourites.
4th one down is my fav! I love the whispered yellow hue. Very beautiful. Thank you
Excellent! Love the processing!
Your written word rivals your photo skills – the vision runs deep on both sides. I so enjoy your postings.
Thanks for visiting. I am glad you like my words. 🙂
I’m not surprised to see that these got many faves. Some of your best work in capturing the sere beauty of winter. Nice work.
Thanks so much Brad. 🙂
Thanks to much for your inspiritional words. I’m in one of those times now.
Well maybe we can be each others painters. 🙂
Sounds like a plan.
Wow, I sometimes forget how incredibly beautiful winter can be. So bare and so real. Thank you for reminding me!
You are welcome. Thanks for stopping by.
These are really beautiful pictures, somehow melancholic and calm, but positive too. There is a sense of resilience about them. Lovely work!
Thanks for your kind words. 🙂 Glad you enjoy the pics.
Just love that last one! But they’re all captivating.
🙂 Thanks. Glad you enjoy them. 🙂
I love that you know the colors are NOT gone, but merely hidden. Never give up on seeking them out, especially when they are nearly invisible. I love the reflectiveness that goes along with your work. 🙂
Thanks for reading my stuff and commenting. 🙂 You make me smile. 🙂
Wonderful description, Seth.
Thanks Leslie. 🙂

Thank you so much. 🙂 I feel honored.
Hiring painters for those gray and dreary days is the right idea. 🙂
Thanks David. You offering to paint for me? 😉
Not really. 🙂
That’s mean!! 😉
Nice looking photos!
From these photos, I can see this is your passion. 😉
Thanks! It is. 🙂 Well, one of them. I seem to have many.
Love how you did these…. They are so cool… I would love to learn how to do that… 😀
You’ll have to get a program to help you. I use FXStudio.
A painter? Haha! 😉
🙂 You putting in your resume? 😉
Oh my goodness, these take me back to my days in the UK, heavy frosts that looked like another world had been uncovered. I LOVE those splashes of colour!!
I really love them all; especially Ohio, color!
Thanks! Glad you like them. 🙂 🙂
LOVE the use of color in these.
Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed the color use.
Reblogged this on sunnychance0207.
Best so far. Absolutely love the grey with the shots of colour. The contrast makes it so much more powerful and poignant. These photos remind me that life is beautiful because of both the shadows and the light.
Thanks Dieu. You words are too kind. 🙂
One of these days I want to learn how to edit photos so you can add a splash of color to a b & w. I love that look. I still haven’t figured out the layers thing on my photo editing program – I don’t know why I can pick some things up so easily and others make me feel (very) blonde – lol… Beautiful photos Seth.
Thanks. You should look at a program called FXStudio. This is the program I use for these photos.
Seen you following my blog for awhile now and just finally I got onto a computer to read some others. Your pictures are amazing! You are very talented Seth!
You take absolutely gorgeous pictures. Of the ones that I have looked through these are my favorites. 🙂
Thank you for your kind words. 🙂
What’s up with the frames?? That’s unusual.. 🙂
I like the red barn.. Is it a barn??
I like the frames. Sometimes it’s hard to tell where one picture starts and the other ends if it has a white background. I am taking it that you don’t like them? 🙂
Can’t you see the smiley at the end?? 😉 Well, to be honest I do like them better without the frames, but with that reason who can argue. 🙂
I figured.. 🙂
Really enjoyed your images here! Also thank you for visiting mine and liking it. Do visit again and I shall follow your blog :).
Nice rural landscape shots.
Thanks so much. Themofman.
¡Me encanta esta serie!
I’m enjoying all your photos–beautiful! Living in Scotland made me wish I were a photographer! Instead, I have to try to capture the beauty with words, which doesn’t usually do justice to a beautiful scene. Oh, and thank you for liking my blog 🙂
Avonlea. Beauty is beauty. You should try your hand at taking pictures.
Yes, suppose I can’t always use the excuse that I don’t have a good enough camera or know how to photo shop! But I try to capture a lot with words.
