began
to
fall

Moody looking sky. Love the starkness of the bare trees. Talk is that we're in for some weather here over the next couple of days. Oh boy. You haven't seen insanity like Raleigh, NC when the forecast calls for snow. *cringe* It doesn't have to actually snow, just threaten to.

Lunacy. Pure lunacy. Could be some good photos to be had though.

Titanium said...

Sweet! Especially with the snow effect... makes the photo pretty surreal.

Tammy said...

I love looking up when the snow is falling!

Sylvia K said...

Yes, it is a moody, but beautiful sky! Terrific photo and love your composition, Daryl! Hope you have a great weekend! Stay warm!

If I didn't know better, I'd say that tree is starting to bud already!

You sure caught the gray moodiness of the city on a gray winter's day! Very well done, Daryl.

Ah...just one thing: You might want to change your "avatar" or photo up on the right of your blog. In the photo you're shooting something other than a Nikon D90! ;-)

Bill Evans could use you!

judi said...

I always love your skies. The tree, the buildings, and the sky itself. I love New York, but especially through your lens.

Carver said...

Great shot and I had to laugh because I was thinking how did she catch the snow falling and keep it falling until I remembered the snow animation, duh.

bobbie said...

That tree is so lovely and delicate looking against the sky.

Flea said...

Pretty! I'm inspired, now, to photograph our snow tomorrow. Here's hoping we actually get snow, and not just the ice that's falling right now. :)

There's my lacy trees!

Fireblossom said...

Look around,

leaves are brown,

and the sky

is a hazy shade of winter...

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Love the perspective. The snow effect is perfect too.

SandyCarlson said...

Yeah. Absolutely perfect. I love the way you look up. The angles you take capture what is awesome about your city. Every time.

Ah, memories of snow flakes falling through the open moon roof of the limo as we cruise down Mad Ave....

And the snow falling on your blog just makes it seem more real. Great piccie, sometimes we all need to just look up.

Dianne said...

the trees join hands to make lace

Robin said...

Stark, but evocative. I like it.

Rob Inukshuk said...

Hmmm, also grey and dull there...I'm off for some sunshine to an Aussie blog!

magicpolaroid said...

ciao, Luis

nonizamboni said...

More snow! But your view always is appealing and easy on the eyes.
Happy Skywatch Friday, my friend.

Annie said...

love your sky shot Daryl...seems ages since I have been here...sorry about that. Don't know what I have been doing...but I did tell CBW that if you had lost your sciatica, I have found it, and have it here!!

Louise said...

So was it taken monochromatic or did it just turn out that way? The effect is good no matter how it happened.

Shelle said...

hi, i have too many of those photos lol.

Kcalpesh said...

A very appealing picture :-)

I always adore your skies!
