Barn Hibernation in Late Winter

Another seasonal scene from Mapleside Farms in Brunswick, Ohio. When I'm actually out taking pictures with overcast skies, it's hard to tell what the result will be. So much depends on the weather and lighting conditions to set the day's mood. It's a matter of working with an image like a sculptor works in stone or wood ... bringing out the form hidden beneath the exterior.

Even in the deepest darkest winter, there are hints of light and beauty. These glinting hints reflect in the sky, from snow-covered rooftops, from finely-curving snowdrifts covering a sleeping land. An invitation to dream ...

This is so beautiful. I love the light of the snow and sky surrounding the trees.

Your photo from your previous post is amazing as well.

I like how you "see"!

I love the moody grey's in this shot and the scene itself holds a lot of appeal, very nicely done. I expect few of us can appreciate what it takes to get just the right shot, unless you're a photographer. Beautifully sculpted.

Lovely shot -there is a lot of beauty in winter -simpler and more distinct than other seasons.
