Wintry pastels

As you probably know by now, I love colour and light,

But they are not always possible to find.

A mild winter means getting to love the pastels of grey, as soft as silk;

The muted browns of sky and land;

And the dance of twirling snowflakes

When an Arctic storm rages in.

  1. Beautiful pictures, one and all. As usual. I really enjoy your last picture. Although it is a still there is a great sense of movement – snow and waves being buffeted by winds you cannot see but certainly can feel just by looking at it. It’s lack of color truly enhances the chill. Nicely done.


  2. I do love your dreamy, misty captures of so much beauty! Looks so peaceful! Thank you, as always, for sharing it with us! Great way to start or end a day! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!



  3. The wonderful tones and softness in these photographs are truly beautiful.
    I love the perspective in the last one.
    Wonderfully captured.


  4. The first one has a mystical quality about it. All of them do really but the first one…. you wonder what is going to rise up out of the lake. Beautiful.


  5. “Soft as silk” is right–aabsolutely lovely photos. How you capture these lovely scenes all the time amazes me. You are definitely on the lookout for beauty every minute of the day. Have a lovely weekend. Mickie 🙂


  6. Beautiful images. It looks like your weather is similar to ours. We had a mild winter until a couple of weeks ago. It has been snowing every day since last Saturday.


  7. It so enjoyable to see your pictures LadyFi !!
    The whole atmosphere… I love it.
    Greetings from Holland,

  8. Lady Fi,
    How beautifully you express the season!!
    Winter colors are melted in harmony.
    Texture is more smooth than silk.
    All photos have atmosphere of black and white ink painting.

    Best wishes,


  9. I agree with Miss Footloose. You are able to show us the beauty of a gray day, whereas so many would say, “Not again!” When will the sun come out. Thanks for that. Sonia.


  10. It’s easy to see why so many of the Dutch masters had such a subdued palette when you have a mild winter like we’ve been having. On the other hand, they have gorgeous springs and summers…makes me wonder if they just painted in the winter!


  11. whoa! this is wow…just wow! indeed pastels n it is like a painting. the way uve got the reflections is absolutely like art on canvas. super like this one 😀
