Blustery in Black & White

I thought the black and white edits suited these blustery images.

We had about 5 inches of snow overnight Thursday, March 9th into Friday. Then Friday afternoon the temperature dropped and the wind began to blow and there was still snow squalls about. 



 the longer I sat in this spot the harder the wind was blowing down across the hill to my right.  There was a windmill off to the right that I was watching. It was really turning in the wind gusts.




Linking with Tom for THE BARN COLLECTIVE

Wishing you all a wonderful week.  

We here in Pa as well as some of you I'm sure, are under a winter storm warning. 

Looks like we finally may get the BIG ONE. We shall see.

UPDATE.....YES WE HAD THE BIG STORM.  Spring has NOT sprung here in PA yet.

I must say Felicia, our weather is a bit better here in New York State. Black and white adds to the drama of these wintery images. On my new Sony camera there is a high contrast mono setting that I like better than taking color and editing them to B&W. I need to try that a bit more. Thanks for sharing today, I hope to see you again.

Hi Felicia, These photos are truly beautiful. We rarely see weather like this in GA, so I am always thrilled when you share. Hope you have a good evening.

Looks like almost realistic colour to me. Some days everything looks so black and white in the winter.

I love those shafts of light coming through the clouds.Black and white often makes the scene look much more dramatic.
Rose said…
Oh, Felicia...I so love these. They are such awesome shots...I cannot tell you how much I love them.
Such beautiful moody photos! Hope you stay safe in what ever storm heads your way!

Burr, thank goodness spring is just around the corner!

Black and white works for me. Summer seems to have arrived when autumn should be starting here - thanks for the cooling images!

Cheers - Stewart M - In Melbourne, but jet-lagged!

the gusts of snow are so pretty,so beautiful. that last photo speaks to me. there is something about the tiny trees at the end of the road in the corner and all that BIG sky... stunning shot

I *really* like the 3rd shot. The clouds, farm, and focal length are just perfect. Yes, tomorrow should be interesting. I confess I drained the gas from my snow blower 2 weeks ago assuming the winter was done. Apparently the joke's on me.
GORGEOUS shots

You're dusted with snow...we're dusted with pollen...my red truck is now gold (I didn't know Ford had golden trucks)
Debby Ray said…
Wow...these are some fantastic shots, girlfriend! Stay safe and warm...I thought of you when I heard about the storm. You're finally getting your snow!
Christine said…
You always manage to find the best spots from which to take your shots, Felicia and I love the wind swept powerfulness in them! gorgeous scenes!

I just got back from San Diego...and I don't wan a big one. I want spring. It looks like I won't get my way though! Nice B&W images.

What lovely shots.

Wow great scenes and that sky is very menacing looking.
Looks like our weather and we are getting more snow today.
Brian King said…
These are gorgeous! I LOVE black and white!
Linda said…
Great black and white images! We finally got some snow last night but much of it melted today.
Lady Fi said…
Wonderful shots.
Klara said…
oh yes - B&W was perfect choice! beautiful photos.
Frame and hang these. What glorious ART you have captured with photographic skills and eye and the guts to get out the camera and take these images. Using black and white format really was what made these photos top notch!
I agree with the "frame and hang" recommendation! These are really beautiful. Beautiful light, composition, and b&w tones. Well done!!

Great series of moody scenes. The last two scenes are particularly dramatic in black and white.
