Heading into Winter

This is one of the pictures that I took during a walk that Vicki and I took on Thanksgiving. We saw the snow falling and we had to go outside. This was right about when the snow turned into rain. That's Vicki walking ahead of me. I love this time of year!

This is my Old Barns post. Follow the link for more old barn photos.

This is such a great photograph! I bet it was warm and toasty by the fire. We are lucky if we see a dusting of snow and I hold out hope each year that we will get some!

Hi James,
mi piace molto questa foto del tuo mondo così da vicino... Vicki, il fumo della casa... un attimo di vita quotidiana così lontana eppure così vicina...
Buona serata :))

One can feel the impending winter. Nice old-fashioned feeling about this photo.

I love the feeling of able to burn some wood during winter. But these days it is hard to find one when everyone prefers to use gas/oil heaters.

Striding towards a lovely open fire. We see the smoke from it and it looks inviting. Not to me, though, as I'm in Australia and the hot summer is just getting into its stride!

Looks as if taken within a long gone epoche. Impressed. Please have you all a good Tuesday.

Brrrrr. LOVE the red jacket. (Can't be too cold if Vicki is wearing jeans - maybe flannel lined?) The big house looks in great shape. The barn is very picturesque but would be sad for it to collapse.

WV: muddpat - no kidding!

Jan n Jer said...

Great shot, it shouts winter!!!!

Rose said...

This could not be more perfect...I can almost smell the wood smoke. I really do love this one.

Marka said...

I like the colouring in the photograph.

Stickup Artist said...

What a great image. The soft earth tones of the misty landscape and almost monochrome old buildings contrasted with the bright red jacket is absolutely fantastic! Once again I get a real sense of time, the present meeting and making peace with the past. This scene makes my mind drift...

Tulsa Gentleman said...

Everything is soft and misty with that red jacket wakes up our eye. This is a great photograph.

Springman said...

Your compsition is well drawn, it takes my eye on a wonderful adventure!

Pat Tillett said...

That was a fantastic photo to start out with. When you added Vicki and her red coat, it became amazing...

Carolyn Ford said...

Vicki's red coat add the final touches to this amazing photo...what a striking composition and the smoke from the chimney adds such warmth. Your processing...wow, it's all so outstanding, James!

Le Journal de Chrys said...

Alors nous écoutions les mêmes musiques... Bonne journée!!!

Gine said...

Trés belles couleurs pour une balade un peu triste ...

Elaine said...

Beautiful image!

Rebecca said...

A beautiful photo and I just LOVE that smoke from the chimney! Perfect.

Lucy Corrander said...

Oh James! It's fabulous.

(I wish I had your camera too!)

Tricia said...

I can see the thin layer of snow on the roof of the barn & I can also see the smoking rolling out of that chimney of the house, it looks COOOOLD! Great barn & farm shot

Anya said...

Cheryl said...

The photo is perfect for announcing the arrival of winter! I love the touch of red.

Jim Klenke said...

Nice shot, makes me want some hot chocolate.

EG Wow said...

I like this time of year too. I think we are in the minority, though. :) This photo makes me feel warm and happy.

Piyush said...

Such a wonderful composition James. Love the way you have treated this shot. The tones are perfect with such a great balance.

Preciosas fotografías.

Halcyon said...

A perfect scene! I love the way her red jacket stands out against the more somber tones of fall.

Jilly said...

Whenever I visit my friends in Ohio and travel to Kentucky, I'm intrigued with the gorgeous America barns. This shot is fabulous. A stunning old barn but it's so made perfect with the smoke and the red jacket. Superb shot.

The red coat of your wife, brings a cheerful punch to the pic, James! I stayed inside for Thanksgiving:):)

My favorite time of the year, too. Crisp, fresh air and all those gorgeous colors.... Beautiful shot here.

Amir Honarmand said...

really great shot, every one can feel different thing from this photo, do you do some extra edit on your photos? if yes which software do you use? Photoshop? or Lightroom?

Amir Honarmand said...

Thanks for you answer, I just want to edit my photos before posting them but I don't how, and with which software I will get most of the photo, photoshop, lightroom, or some programs such as one you mentioned, any way thanks for you tip, I have just one camera Canon EOS 500D with two lenses, 18-55 and 55-250, I will be glad if you leave comment about my photos and help me to improve my photography skill,
thank in advance

Lovely, James... Your post-processing is perfect to bring out the moodiness of this early winter country barn scene with Vicky in her red jacket.
