at the grill

dead heads from last summer's black-eyed susans mingle with some unknown flora - maple saplings or grapevine, perhaps. this captured after dark, in the back, as i was grilling dinner while i still can. a big snowstorm is forecasted. there'll be no more cooking outside then.

This is fabulous. I can't wait to be able to cook outdoors again!

Alle said...

Nice picture ...all though you grilled in that? burrr! =)

The lighting just came out magical, the bright on the foreground "foliage", with the receding light in the background. Great job. Good luck with your upcoming storm!

Strange that this may sound, but I really like your photo. The cool colors and the amazing blue background. Hope you'll have power through the storm. I remember my daughter complaining one winter that the power went out during a snow storm and she was so cold. She tried to make a fire in the fireplace but it didn't last until her savor (husband) came home from work to build a nice warm fire.
Sending some warm hugs,
Autumn

Hello,
I am another blogger. You may not have noticed this yet – many people haven’t – but you are now being restricted on how many posts you may show on your home page (and in your archive pages) due to a new “auto pagination” restriction that Blogger has introduced. This is wrecking many people’s blogs, ones that by their nature, need to show lots of posts on the main page. If this bothers you, please consider entering a complaint at this help forum. Unless a lot of people respond, they won’t change it back. Thanks.

I ❤❤❤ this photo ... (and all of your others, of course)!

I am struck by the tenacity of nature under such conditions ... as well as the opposing conditions my garden suffers in today under the sizzling + 45 degrees Celsius heat.

Thank you so much for sharing and enjoy the snow!

I like your photo. I think it's so interesting.

Suz said...

Loved the photo and the fact that you were actually grilling out in the snow.

We have snow, too but the temperatures have been in the single digits and even the most hardy souls are not cooking outside. Maybe another month or so.

Sweet and simple, small but meaningful thing to notice outside your window.

Hi Chris - What a great photo! I, too am a New Englander as well as a LOST fan - can't wait to see how it all shakes out. Is Jacob the evil one or is it black-smoke Locke?

Heavens2Betsy, Alle, & Suz: i grill outside as much as i can, all year long. there's nothing like salmon on the grill during a january snowstorm!

Alison & Autumn Ray Creation's: that was strange lighting - which is what prompted me to go get the camera! and i love a fire in the fireplace, too!

Tara: thoughts of the "opposing conditions" still leave me awestruck. so odd to think february=winter here and summer there!

Nezzy: thank you. :-) that blog of note distinction was amazing!

Novelyn: it doesn't take much to delight me or to make me sit up in amazement!

Deedee: i can't believe LOST is this close to being over and i am still LOST! i hope jacob is god.

LoVelitaZ: thank you for the kind words!

Dawn, Kisma, Digital Cameras, & Kay: thank you. i am so happy to think people like my pictures! i appreciate the comments!
