. . .became somewhat desolate




No, not really. But this is a photo of a rural eastern Kansas landscape yesterday afternoon at about 3:30.




If you can't see the beauty in the various shades of gray, brown and black, you are in big trouble out here.

These two pics are stunning. I love the first one in particular. I am a great appreciator of grays. I have to be too because fog is our number 1 environmental condition!

I see the minimalist beauty. How's the job going? Remember you asked us to remind you to paint! No matter what!

This scene looks like my water view this morning- I live on a cliff over looking the bay-- and the water and the sky had no division this morning-- both white and ethereal-- haunting like your image
