and this will still be a lonely setting, full of memories never recorded.

  1. Harvest time but a dream now. The long sleep of once verdant pastures. Beautiful image.

  2. Lovely, lovely image. I like the old farm equipment resting in its history nearby the woods or in the fields. This is a really nice composition in the snow. 🙂

  3. This is lovely indeed! The calming snow is always so magnanimous!

    Happy New Year from Montana’s finest cross country ski trails (The Moulton)

  6. Montucky,

    Just stumbled across your blog. Montana is indeed beautiful. I am trying to do something similar for Colorado.

  7. Maureen,

    Yes, the hayfields are sleeping now, awaiting the warm earth once again. Right now that idea appeals to me!

  8. Thanks, Anna! I wish I knew more of the history of that spot. It would make a good peek into memories, wouldn’t it!

  9. Sumedh,

    There is indeed a calming effect to snow at times; at others, a tempest.

  10. Mike,

    I’d send some of this if I could, after shoveling it most of the day!

    Thanks for visiting!

  11. EcoRover,

    It’s nice to see a winter like this again. I remember many like it from the ’40’s and ’50’s.

    Thanks for the visit, and Happy New Year!

  12. Sylvia,

    Thanks for the visit! I spent 3 years in Denver back in the 70’s and know how beautiful Colorado is. I hope you enjoy displaying scenes from there as much as I have enjoyed showing some from here.

    Best of luck with your blog!

  15. I love how things get so weathered when they’re outside for a long time. There really is a lot of beauty there.

  16. I imagine that goes back to the 20’s or 30’s. Lots of rust!

  17. That’s a beautiful photo! I love how the rust echoes the shades of the trees – well-done!
