Sepia Scenes - Winter will not quit
Sepia Scenes arrives on another winter day, in a week and season of too much frozen precipitation. In my years, I haven't seen this much snow. Even in color, the monochrome white snow looks and feels cold.
But not without a hint of beauty. However, a bit of editing with a hint of sepia, the views are enhanced a bit. Maybe a bit warmer. At least the glare of the snow is muted slightly.
The view above is last Thursday after the driveway was shoveled. The snowy alp in the foreground is where the snow of the day went, on top of the three previous snowstorms...
The look is from wheelchair height. I estimate that snow pile to be over 4 feet (122 cm) tall. Backing out of the driveway and making left turns are made with care, as it is impossible to see over the snow.
The view below was taken behind the front door about an hour ago. Last night it was sleet, now it is freezing rain. I hope to get out of the house sometime.
The snow by the railings is tall because two men shovel the snow 3-4 feet off the roof yesterday. The sepia changes the mood slightly, just warming things up slightly. It would be nice if the sepia melted it all...See more soothing sepia at Mary's meme!
