The gloomy days of January have arrived. They washed out the snow and brought the clouds with them. Record heat also joined their bandwagon, followed closely by freezing temperatures. It has been a roller coaster of a ride. Nothing particularly new for these parts. It seems that if you are not happy with the weather, Mother Nature will gladly change it for you in a few days or even hours. I have a call in to her. It’s time for a change.
Great photos – particularly like ‘Road to Heaven’ -very beautiful and very aptly named!
I want to write stories for you. Sounds strange I know, but I am a writer by trade and your photographs inspire me. Do you mind if I write for you?
You are always welcome to write how any photo makes you feel. 🙂
These certainly are not gloomy. Very beautiful.
Thanks so much.
I love the stream to nowhere. It reminds me of a hidden spot I found on campus when I was in college and I would go there whenever I felt like escaping the noise.
Nice, which college?
SUNY Oswego in upstate New York. Campus was right on Lake Ontario.
Nice. I’ve never been there but it sounds nice.
It’s a quaint college town. When I was there it was mostly churches and bars, but I don’t know what the place is like now. I’m heading back there in April for a fantasy/role-playing game/anime convention to promote my book, so I guess I’ll find out.
Your photos are cold and bleak- they capture the winter in the midwest. Great job.
Love “Monument” and “Blue and Broken”
Lovely photos. And here I was complaining about the weather in London 🙂 I wouldn’t mind a little snow…
Me too! Thanks.
Awesome set. LOVED “come to my window”.. reminded of a bit from a comedian Jo Koy . The joke was about him visiting Alabama and a guy picked him up from the airport in a truck and dropped him off at the local motel…all the residents were pooling around his window and he was so scared. They kept telling him “come to the window” and he was like noooooo. lol
I also loved Mud Pie Factory. So creepy and pretty at the same time.
I noticed the “gloomy” weather here in NY too. The other day I was waiting for it to get light outside and it never really did. I sighed and said welcome to winter. Even when it was in the middle of the afternoon and the sun was out it’s still has a dark tint.
Thanks Tasha. Maybe mother nature is going off our auras. 🙂 I’ve been a bit gloomy too lately. 🙂 Love that Alabama story. 🙂
Love love love Mud pie factory and Road to heaven. Nice work!
I really like “Road to Heaven”…nice eye!
I’m a big fan of the Leaning Telephone Pole: anything could happen. Rock on! – Bill
Especially love “Mud Pie Factory” and the last photo!
Yes, not gloomy at all! Is full of blooming! 🙂
Great Pictures! I went out the other day it seems like the same day we were in the 60’s and today is circling the freezing point! Great Album!
Crazy weather. Thanks.
I guess I’m one of those barn lovers…like your photograph.
I always love your pictures! Great job as always.

interesting … your river image looks very much like something i photographed today …
Really. Is it on your blog? I’ll have a look.
No, it’s not.
Most of my work is unpublished.
My laptop though has thousands of images.
Geo. I hope you have backed up your laptop so you won’t lose those in case something happens.
always backed up my friend 🙂
Gloomy days in Georgia, too. Rain for 8 straight days.
Yeah. Filling up that lake GA and AL have been fighting over.
it looks like in my country!
i´m waiting for the sping..
all the best, albert
Albert. We still have a few months yet.
thank u for beeing on my site!

Seth, I love the ‘Road to Heaven’ photo, it really caught my eye!
Lots of folks like that one. Thanks.
I like the toppling telephone pole in no mail.
Thanks! 🙂 …
Brilliant, Seth! Sensory was amazing!
Reblogged this on smartsyco.
I could spend hours walking in these woods, peaceful 😀
Reblogged this on My story to you.. and commented:
I could sit in these woods for hours and write 🙂
Sadly…often January is gloomy, here too for the most part… although for the last couple of days, today included, we’ve had beautiful sunshine but bitter cold!!! Your photos don’t feel gloomy to me, some feel very calm and restful, while others have a mysterious feel to me…of course I’m a barn lover & a road to heaven lover, but this full set of photos has something that appeals to me! I think it has to do with the setting of each photo… they have a tremendous amount of detail…makes me want to keep looking to see what I find…for instance, what looks like a tiny bit of red on the side door on the barn, last photo… 🙂
Heather–thanks so much. Your comments always make me 🙂
hope gloomy days won’t stay forever !
Me neither. Thanks.
Ooh, it does look cold there! (It’s cold here too, due the snow tomorrow.) You’ve captured the that feeling well though; I actually shivered looking at some of the images.
Jas–Snow wonderful. here just cold. 😦
Awww sweetie. You wrap up warm for those hikes.
Not a fan of gloomy, cold days. Fortunately, our weather has taken a turn to the sunny, warmer kind.
soon here I hope. Thanks david.
Glad it’s not only us that have them .. I have a fetish for old barns … like that you just given the a little bit of color. My picks of this great bunch.
Thanks viveka. 🙂
It’s beautiful in it’s greyness, isn’t it?
Yes, Thanks Karen.

I think you’ve perfectly captured that weird, nebulous dead zone between winter and spring.
Love it! the moss is amazing in these photos and at any other time of year it would be visually washed out from all the competition.
You captured it so well. Love the road to heaven!!
Thanks! 🙂 That seems to be everyone’s favorite.
I love how you describe each photo. Very appropriate. 🙂
