Inspired by…the many shades of gray

Arctic outflow warning in effect.

The past couple of days have been frosty and gray, mixed with a bit of blowing snow. Fantastic winter weather. The type of cold that bites. The type of weather that lets you know you are alive. I like it…(if I am dressed appropriately)

I had to do a little creative business  down in the city, but managed to stop along the way and take some pictures. I was almost blown over.

I love the color. I know its gray, but I am loving all the different shades of gray these days. I love how gray takes on any color that is close by.

I need to practice my photography and work on my white balances a bit more. The photos do not do the day justice. The lighting was so beautiful and soft.

I decided to make this photo black and white. Here I am driving down the sea to sky hwy being inspired by all the grayness (of all things!) and what happens…the sun decides to pokes it face through and add a whole new dimension of color to everything.

Very beautiful….but not gray.

Back in Britannia Beach.

Some photos, a very brisk dog walk and a delicious latte at Galileo Coffee ~ my favorite stop of the day.

On the road home….
