Blue, Brown And Grey.


An almost monochrome shot but not quite. The grey-brown of the stone crosses echoes the grey-brown of the winter trees. But, for the last few days here in Britain, the sky is blue. Bright, pulsating blue.

Pulsating blue ... and COLD. I like the picture, Alan, it echoes the cold. What are the crosses dedicated to?

Never thought of blue as pulsating. Red is pulsating - especially after having had 3 teeth out on Wednesday.

Beautiful! I love the sky clear and crisp like that! Blue sky is a little rare for you Brits isn't it? :) And come back over for a bowl of soup. I'll serve you up one nice and hot. xo

This is a nice shot, Alan. I like it for the values in the colors. Warm colors to me.

I love your challenging use of English! Most people know pulsating as meaning "to expand and contract rhythmically, to beat, quiver, or vibrate." but there is a meaning that I am sure Alan meant here, and that is number three in my dictionary: "EXCITING" It is surely exciting to see blue sky again after all those clouds. I took a picture the other day here as we also had pure exciting blue sky. I called it "Blue Sky. Blue Windows"
Your picture is a lovely dichrome of blue and brown! Thanks for sharing.

No blue sky today...it only happens when I'm stuck in the office! The colours in this photo are very complementary, it works well.

Sorry I have fallen behind with my comments.
The colors and shadows along with the crosses make a wonderful image.
