Monochrome? No, not really. I took these photos around 4:15 this afternoon. It’s been raining, drizzling, misting, and then the fog rolled in. Creepy. Grey. Dark. Damp. Our trees and woods take on a different persona. I stand outside and hear things dripping and other odd noises I am not familiar with. The ground squelches beneath my shoes. A word, sploppy, comes to mind.  I shot these images because I felt compelled to. I don’t normally do two posts in one day, but I had to. I did not add filters, or alter them in any way. They are as I took them. The only color to be seen is in the first photo, and you can just make out the greenness of the moss growing on the trunk on the closest tree. The second and third photos are ‘my’ tree that I wrote about just the other day. Now you can admire it in a whole new light. ehr...or lack [of light] thereof. I can’t wait to see it draped in snow.

That first shot…just stunning!

I’m so sorry about Bart.  I do think that it’s a wonderful thing that you are doing.  That is, to try and respect what you think he would want, instead of what is easiest for you.  I know it’s got to be hard. 

btw, I noticed you have another Susan, so I thought I’d just tack on the WA.
