~Seen on a Winter's afternoon.~


Even though there are no flowers or foliage to show you,
it seems that winter has a palette all her own.

Soft greys, muted browns and watered blues,
and the warmth of old red brick to add contrast.

  1. Aloha Sheila,
    It's always lovely to see you reflect about things of the season. It seems shades of thunder gray and snow white are indeed winters palette.

  2. Nice captures!
    I love old churches like that. It would be nice to renovate one into a home!!!
    Wasn't it cold today?
    I hope you had your hot chocolate with you when you took these.

  3. I love the view of anything through trees. There is just something that is so captivating to me that leaves or no leaves it tells a story. Ah yes, winter white, dove gray....soft browns...a lovely combo...just not for months on end.
    Here's to an early thaw for you!
    XOXOXO

  4. Lovely scenery,so serene and tranquil. I can almost feel the chill. The red brick chimneys add a homey feel. To me this is an example of the sacred in the ordinary.

  5. old chimneys and churches are my weakness, not many old ones here of either actaully - not many chimneys full stop as this climate doesnt require much heating. Whenever I go to the Uk thats when I get my fill of them, love your post!

  10. I love the photo of the cottage chimneys through the trees. It evokes a feeling of "almost home" as if I've been for a long walk with the dog and my feet and hands are cold and there'll be a cup of hot cocoa waiting for me when I get back to the cottage!

  11. I love the chimneys! I also love bare winter branches.. so much so that when I see them, I want to gather them up in my arms and bring them inside... what is it about them I wonder?
