A walk on a mild winter day is always a nice event. Exploring the land when one aught to be bundled up next to a winter fire is a bit like being on the moon without a spacesuit. I shouldn’t be here at this time. But, I was and it was beautiful. There’s not much color to be found this time of year but what color remains is enhanced by the dullness around it. It shines and sparkles. It is unique and magnificent. The outcasts of winter, like most other outcasts, are the color and spice of life. Scenes of the forgotten tossed away solitary leaf, still red, float across the dull mundane landscape and remind us that we live on a wild and beautiful planet and even in the darkest bit of winter, color springs forth.
nice touch of colour!
Beauty finds a way to break through the bleak does it not? 😊
yes it does. 🙂 Thanks.
I love your photography. In fact I wrote on my blog today on how I am touched from other bloggers and one of those ways is through their photography. Thank you.
That’s so kind. Thanks.
What absolutely wonderful photographs!! Bravo!
Thanks so much Lanier. I need to come back out there to SFO and take some photos of that beautiful place.
If you do come let me know!
Gorgeous post! I love this collection of stark contrasts and exquisite forms. Really enjoyed it. Thanks for braving the cold and finding this unique beauty and sharing it with us.
Welcome! Nothing as nice as your scenery though! 🙂
Oh, I so disagree! Thanks for the compliment, but your posts are beyond beautiful and I often wish I was there….I guess the grass is always greener applies here….:)
The bits of color are great – warm spot did it this time.
Thank you for liking my blog. What a wonderful eye for line you have in your photography.
Thanks! Glad you like my lines. 🙂
Everything was awesome as usual.Reminds there is something always colourful in this drab life, be it memories, nostalgia !
By the way, if you can please read/review my short story Final destination
I just did. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Love the pine cone, as conifers are one of my favorite subjects to photograph.
Thanks! I think they are quite interesting as well.
Wow! The wonders of nature – just superb.
Thanks so much. 🙂
Beautiful Photography Sethsnap 😀
I envy your photography skills. These are the type of pictures I take for my series 100 steps. I decided on something slightly different today.
Thanks so much. 🙂 ;
really beautiful !
Seth: Great idea…nice images!
Thanks so much. :P)
What a great post! I love these small flashes of colour as they completely transform a sombre picture. You are very creative in your use of photography blended with original writing. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog too.
These images make one yearn for the colors of spring! Lovely work!
Very nice post today……I like the bits of colour. It really adds to the photo.
Interesting style for today’s images…..might just have to try it myself! Very Nice, Best wishes
Lovely shots Seth!
Thanks Mark. That’s very kind of you.
I love your images. Any advice for a beginner? As a designer, I can see the way I want the picture to look. But I can never get the camera to translate it. I know I need to start with a better camera. Suggestions?
I have a Nikon D3100 which is a started DSL camera. Capture what you feel. Don’t try too hard. Just snap your feelings.
Looks cold out there!
It wasn’t too bad. But it’s about to get really cold soon.
Stay for a while. Let’s talk is very inviting. Great photos!
Thanks. I thought that bench looked so sad there all alone.
You are incredibly talented!
I love “Shadows…” and “Stay for a while”.
Question: I have a few “lightboxes” on your other site. I am assuming that I put pictures I want to purchase later in the lightbox. Is that what that’s for?
Yes you can use it for that. You can also just use it to store photos you like as a collage. Thanks!
I love the ‘bits of ice’ picture. Something about seeing the sun on something frosted with ice always makes me smile.
love these…the touches of colour surrounded by the starkness make the photos exceptionally interesting!
If only I had the eye. Your photos are always breathtakingly beautiful. 🙂
Brilliant Seth 🙂
Thank you so much for your support.
Amazing editing !
Thanks so much. 🙂 .
Great photos again here…. and we have snow to photograph so I’ll have to get out there and see what I can capture like you!
Thanks again for reading and liking my blog – enjoy cooking the pud 🙂
Yes… you should. 🙂 look forward to seeing them all.
Very nice as always! I have been a bit lazy in posting my adventure the other day, I think you would be impressed, once I finally post the pictures! Seth you are a great Photographer! I can only hope to be so good someday!!! Keep up the great work!
Thanks so much. I look forward to seeing your adventure pictures.
Warm spot is my favorite! It is nice to see someone capturing warmth on the cold season.
Thanks. 🙂 ..
Love these photos. Brightness among the cold. 🙂
I don’t know why but for me the one with the park bench really stands out as particularly stunning, not that the other pictures aren’t any good. (Your pictures are always sure to delight.) That one just really caught my eye.
Thank you. He was a lonely
Beauty is where you see it, and you captured it very well. I especially like “Warm Spot”.
Agree. Thanks. 👍
Seems you are a resident of heaven! excellent job!
I wish I could take pictures like yours. And I wish you lived near me so I could pick your brain!
You can pick my brain now. Ask away.
My two favorites….. the bench and the pine cone 🙂
loving these shots
I can feel the greatness of the moment and I see a smile in a cold winter day, T´ks Albert
I`d like to write my blog in english to.
I`ll be lucky, if you help me a little bit.
This is a question, no oligation.
Thank you very much, Albert
sure i’ll help
OH i love how you found “color” hidden in the winter land. Love the little bench! Can picture myself just sitting there drinking coffee.
Thanks again Tasha.
