The colours of a northwest winter by MrsRatbag ()
The bleak white sky of a just-barely-lifted fogbank, the black-greens of our evergreens, the browns of leafless trees; if we would just have some snow I'd be happier about it all! Our only real colour seems to be the mosses and grass right now.

That's such a beautiful spot, and I never tire of seeing it. We were up near Mount Vernon today at the campground, and saw loads of new grass in the fields. Not only that, but I saw a mosquito, a fly and a spider, all mobile and doing their thing! In February! I know that sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, but it's true. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
Beautiful! Stunning. This looks like something from that planet I wanna move to: you know, the one where they got that big sparkly thing next to the big, green thing, but the have a yearly carnival when the knife-blossoms bloom? Okay, bringing myself back to earth, I'll say...WOW! Love rotting wood sticking out of water, and this is as wonderful as it gets. This always makes me think of the George Pal version of The Time Machine in which we see buildings rise and fall and all of that stuff, and this is the all that's left of what once stood there bit of the scene, and now I'm wondering what these pilings once supported. Nice mystery there! And to top it off, it's a fantastic, super-marvelous photo. One that made a trip into my Favorites file, before I commented! This rocks.
Oh what a nice shot of winter in the Northwest, there really is a certain beauty in the dreary dampness there like nowhere else I have ever been. Ah someday I will get back home and have the time to just look at the beauty of the area. Thanks for reminding me of how much I truly miss the Northwest.
