11.30.2015 Holyoke Range Skyline

Weather predictions are guesswork at best for my money.  The first thing I do when I wake is check the current forecast on my Kindle at bedside.  Yesterday the guess was clear skies and sunny.  Sunny did eventually happen. but not until after several hours of decidedly unclear skies.  I looked out the window and saw stars and light clouds here and there.  By the time I got out, a huge cloud bank was covering the southeastern sky…just where the sun was due to rise, of course.

I went to my planned location in hopes of some little crack in the clouds, but no luck.  As they say, when given lemons…

As always, keep clicking until you see the larger image. 🙂

Honey-Pot-Skyline-112915-700WebThis is about a half hour before sunrise which would have at least brightened things.  I decided to go for unbright.

Tomorrow’s post will be more colorful, although also a bit unbright.

    We are stuck in a long string of cloudy days and nights. We might get some sun Thursday. 😦

    Even though it’s not colorful and bright, the photo evokes for me the relief of a visible horizon at sea. I liked standing night watches, but always was happier when I could see other vessels without having to depend on their lights. And, as you’ve shown, it doesn’t take much light at all to dispel the darkness.

    • I enjoy being out just before the start of dawn and can relate to your enjoying the dark, Linda. I must admit that part of that enjoyment is knowing the light is on its way and watching it build, revealing all that was hidden, is a great experience. It is entirely different at the other end of the day.

  3. Very moody. dramatic and has those wonderfully reflected trees. This is nice for a change. It sort of reminds me of the weather here. Dark, dismal with heavy to light then, drizzling rain.

    No sun here either Steve. I gave up believing weather forecasts long ago. Still, you’ve done well with what you got. Roll on Spring.


    • Spring…Hah! We haven’t even reached the Solstice yet. Actually, I am in no hurry…yet. I am looking forward to ice abstracts and frosted twigs but, I am sure, I will tire of them quickly enough with visions of sugar trilliums dancing in my head.

      • In this warmer climate I can’t do ice abstracts the way you can, but I’ve been looking forward to another chance at photographing frostweed doing its magic ice trick. I see that last year I didn’t get the opportunity till December 29, but in other years a freeze came as early as a week into December.

      • I recently walked the trail where I find frostweed without any luck. I’ll keep trying.


  5. The little horizontal ripples on and around the lower contours of the dark shadows do it for me.
