Shadow Shot Sunday, Tracy's great meme, arrives in late January.
This much snow is not typical along Long Island Sound a mere 85 miles (145 km) northeast of New York City.
Typically a nuisance, the 45 cm+ (each) snowstorms are not common. Until 2011, and the 50 inches/125 cm in January that is...Dickens could have written something like: It was the warmest of seasons, it was the coldest of seasons...
The digital world is full of memories. Perhaps of warmer days, where our energy is working overtime to merely keep us warm.
The summer scene (above) is a warm yellow green that surrounds the shadow of the mulberry tree in the front yard. It is not a fine lawn, no fertilizer just merely mowed. The visual psychology suggests warm - we agree.
Below is late afternoon on Thursday. The frozen land looks, and thus feels cold. The only advantage to this is that the dead autumn leaves are not visible now :) Actually, the sun and shade is attractive, warm in the sense that the shot was taken indoors!
See great shadowy scenes at Hey Harriet!
