Shades of grey

You’re not tired of snowy pictures yet, are you?

Good. Because neither am I!

Snow scene

The skies are often grey over here

As they are weighed down by snow clouds.

But that suits my world so full of grey and silver highlights.

Grey and white

Roofs are utterly delicious

As they remain hidden under white frosting

And cats smile under snowy hats.

My favourite view is this lovely grey wooden house

With a wonderful curl of roof icing.

    Gooooood shtufffs, you. ………… tones and tonal, adds weight, volume and mass and gives that sense of depth. Don’t know about you but I prefer taking photographs on cloudy days in the deep of winter, especial when your close or part of the surroundings. Bright light can fade deep rich colours of delicate things.

  15. indrani

    Lovely! I don’t get to see these here at all.

    January 28, 2013 at 17:52

  16. I would actually love to swap homes with you for a couple of weeks, your world regularly takes my breath away with its beauty.

    January 28, 2013 at 18:03

  17. Don

    I so value your images and I’m certainly not tired of the snow. The colours, the light, the landscape in which you live never ceases to amaze me. Sheer beauty and I love seeing it. Perhaps because it is sooo different from ours.

    January 28, 2013 at 18:11

  18. Love that fantastical curve of snow falling off the roof!

    January 28, 2013 at 18:15

  19. Woah, that roof snow is crazy! I love when it starts to slide off like that. Keep the snowy photos coming!

    January 28, 2013 at 18:39

  20. These are so gorgeous! White frosting all over roofs! I adore every one of these shots!

    January 28, 2013 at 18:44

  21. Truly beautiful!

    January 28, 2013 at 19:19

  22. magentmama

    I love snowy pictures, especially because here in Sicily we never see snow!:)

    January 28, 2013 at 19:26

  23. These are so pretty! I just love seeing snowy pictures. Everything looks so calm and serene. Wonderful photos.

    January 28, 2013 at 19:35

  24. I have never seen a snow curl to rival that one!!! Most people around here would break it off – we had a lot of roofs damaged by snow build-up a few years ago, and people get nervous…
    I have to agree with you that gray house is beautiful!! Especially the cat on the roof!!

    January 28, 2013 at 19:49

  25. Riet

    Oh my goodness what a lot of snow. Your photo’s are as always beautiful

    January 28, 2013 at 19:50

  26. Jim

    Fiona, bring them on!! These photos remind me of how winter should be or at least used to be around here….when I was a wee lad!
    You have really inspired me you know……to stop/pause and take a look around. You’re the best!

    January 28, 2013 at 20:08

  27. Bob

    The snow looks lovely, excellent photos.

    January 28, 2013 at 21:06

  28. Gorgeous greys, Fi. Astonishing how the snow on the roof really does look like an enormous slab of marzipan icing! Thanks again for sharing the beauty of your side of the world.

    January 28, 2013 at 21:25

  29. I love the snow and Sophie loves the loves….so that pretty much sums it up….are you allowed to touch the snow icing?

    January 28, 2013 at 21:53

  30. You make the snow look so inviting!

  31. A true winter wonderland.

    January 28, 2013 at 22:16

  32. Wow, wonderful as always!

    I’d welcome the snow back right now… We’ve got wind and rain😦

    January 28, 2013 at 22:54

  33. I’m so far behind with blog visits but I’m glad I stopped by today. I have scrolled back and enjoyed every one of your beautiful posts but this sculpted snow is just divine!

    January 28, 2013 at 23:10

  34. kind of glad our snow here is not that bad, but do love the magnificence of it!

    January 29, 2013 at 00:16

  35. Lady Fi, I love how the snow circles the roofs. I don’t think I’ve seen that before. Wow, lots of snow. But then, I do live in Florida.:) Lovely!

    January 29, 2013 at 02:22

  36. cosmos

    What a gorgeous curl of roof icing! Isn’t the cat on the roof real?

    January 29, 2013 at 02:24

  37. onceupona

    Your pictures have been a bright spot in my life this month even though I haven’t been by to comment. I hope you’ve gotten over your frostbite! Cheers! Danette

    January 29, 2013 at 02:33

  38. I’d love to be inside and looking out at that silver lining! Finally snowing a bit here – only a very little, though – no frosting on my roof.

    January 29, 2013 at 03:13

  39. Go Save that CAT!!! Haaaaa.

    lovely. Xx

    January 29, 2013 at 03:16

  40. It’s 80 here in January.:)

    January 29, 2013 at 03:27

  41. Beautiful shots of winter’s wonderland. I could never tire of your photos.:)

    January 29, 2013 at 04:10

  42. That curl is unique. And, I can relate to grey skies as evidently where I live ranks up there with Seattle as the most cloud-covered portion of the US. Enjoy your day LadyFi.

    January 29, 2013 at 05:29

  43. I can only imagine what it will be like:) I normally send warm hugs…I don’t think I will send you one as I don’t want to melt that beautiful view.

    Best regards will do.


    January 29, 2013 at 06:20

  44. Those are beautiful pictures! Love that snow curl!

    January 29, 2013 at 06:24

  45. I love me some snow and you really captured the magic of snow in the country. Frosting indeed and much more appetizing than grimy city snow.

    January 29, 2013 at 06:31

  46. I am always amazed at how the snow can droop off the edge of a roof. This curl in particular is really impressive!
    And I don’t think I could ever tire of snow pictures.:)

    January 29, 2013 at 07:18

  47. Simply gorgeous photos, gorgeous. Awesome snow that roof.

    January 29, 2013 at 09:13

  48. I can never ever tire of seeing the beauty that you show. As for the post, every bit of this snow is paradise:)

    January 29, 2013 at 09:50

  50. Beautiful pictures, but what a lot of snow !

    January 29, 2013 at 10:22

  51. Wouldn’t like to be under that roof when the snow drops off. I can’t get enough of these snowy pictures.

    January 29, 2013 at 10:33

  52. Awesome… the snow roofs are fascinating. The first one is inviting for a stroll.

    January 29, 2013 at 10:37

  53. Lady Fi, you snow images are just beautiful. I could never tire of seeing your lovely photos.

    January 29, 2013 at 11:02

  54. Awesome winter pictures, Lady Fi!
    We had also two weeks of snow, but Sunday was the thaw and
    everything is gone now…
    The temperature is so high that it seems like spring over here…😉:)
    Have a nice week Lady Fi and warm greetings from Holland,

    January 29, 2013 at 11:23

  56. You capture them so well!!

    January 29, 2013 at 12:33

  57. Great pictures – I like the last one best – you just about assume its in B/W and then you notice the window. Nice.

    I love the swoops and curls of snow
    very decorative!

    January 29, 2013 at 13:26

  61. Fabulous wintry images! You’ve captured the feeling beautifully!

    January 29, 2013 at 14:57

  62. We don’t see too many of those snow curls here, but we might since it’s going to warm up a little bit, and then cool down again.

    Lovely shots.


    January 29, 2013 at 15:55

  63. Not at all, specially when you click the beauty of snow. Beautiful shots:)

    Stunning. Probably numbing too.

    January 29, 2013 at 21:14

  75. Truly beautiful winter pictures! I love the snow over the windows.

    January 29, 2013 at 21:45

  76. Pictures like these make one wish for a BIG snow. We never get snow like this here in VA. I love the way it is draping down from the roofs. genie

    January 30, 2013 at 01:09

  77. Al

    I love snowy photos, and these are beauties. I wish we’d get a good snowstorm here!

    January 30, 2013 at 01:53

    January 30, 2013 at 03:13

  79. Just amazing… More snow! More snow!

    January 30, 2013 at 03:38

  80. Looking at the snowy images is beautiful!!!! Living in it…is another topic☺

    January 30, 2013 at 03:58

  81. Silvery gray is beautiful ! Your pictures here and the ones in the beautiful post you linked to really make me want to reconsider my fear of being cold ;>)!

    January 30, 2013 at 04:44

  82. Those snow scenes are breathtakingly beautiful. I particularly love the overhang of snow with the little kitty wind vane over the top. Please keep posting them. We will rejoice with you when winter is finished, but in the meantime, keep them coming!


    January 30, 2013 at 05:01

  83. · I’m no tired yet. I enjoy a lot of your snowy photos. I love snow. Yesterday I was walking for 5 hours with my snowshoes.

    I smiled at each and every image, looking at them and reading your words.
    Thank you!

    January 30, 2013 at 20:53

  89. Would you care if I used your line, “If I was Invisible, I’d tickle sad people in buses” for a story?

    January 30, 2013 at 21:11

  90. No, I am NOT tired of snow photos. I believe snow is beautiful. :)) Your photos prove that!

    January 30, 2013 at 22:04

  91. that roof icing is amazing!

    January 30, 2013 at 23:16

  92. OMG, that snow is already very thick on the roof, isn’t that already scary! Keep warm, and be happy!

    January 31, 2013 at 04:28

  93. Hi. Beautiful series of snow landscape photos. I like a cat on the roof photo very much.

    January 31, 2013 at 05:38

  94. Beautiful snowy scenes. I think the white icing curling off the last roof is my favorite too.

    January 31, 2013 at 07:20

  95. These beautiful simplicity and tranquility made me forget the struggles of people living with heavy snow.

    January 31, 2013 at 07:28

    January 31, 2013 at 10:33

    February 1, 2013 at 04:23

  99. I never tire of the view into your world..even if it looks grey:)
