Sepia Scenes - Snowy Sepia

Sepia Scenes adds a warming tone to many subjects. Why not an addition of sepia to a winter precipitation, the warmth enhancing the wet snow. This was the day before Thanksgiving in the Uplands that year, but not too much snow - only too early. There is a beauty in snow, it seems cloud like when draped over the hedge. The rim of snow on the vase is a detail as is the frozen water adhering to the limbs of our Mulberry tree and mighty oak across the street. I don't particularly like the cold, but truly enjoy the snowy view...

I feel just like you do Ralph - I love the snow scene but not the cold. This is a lovely snow scene. Dramatic! :) Happy Sepia Scenes!

Our lamppost/hedge scene looks great with snowy sepia. Or would that be sepia snow?

Nice light sepia touch, my dear.

Wow, this was some picture! Good idea to make a snowing picture in sepia. Wouldn´t have crossed my mind... You can always learn new things from others!

Yes, it's nice to view snow when one is warm and cozy! Great choice for sepia.

Linda said...

Just looking at that I am reminded of just how much I am NOT looking forward to that scene again this winter!

Snow always looks good in sepia, as long as it's in someone else's back yard, ha.

Oh, I like this...snow scenes are some of my favorites. There is just something about snow...takes me back to childhood.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Time Stand Still.

Lovely winter scenery. Perfect in sepia. Thanks forr sharing :-)

Robin said...

I agree - snowy scenes are lovely - especially if they're viewed through a big picture window or camera lens, rather than freezing my feet!

What make a snow scene so delightful is knowing that you are safe and warm inside, enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee or perhaps sipping a good, red wine.

This is a nice photo and very old fashioned looking.

Ralph, that is such a beautiful shot! I love how thick the snow is on the branches of the tree and bush. It is a reminder of things to come. It snowed in the mountains near my home last night. And the air was bitter cold. I long for warm summer sun. Just for a few more weeks.

How clever of you to make winter look warmer than it really is. Kind of makes what's coming a tad bit more enjoyable. ;-)
