sunlight and dirty snow


the snowmen have all toppled over, the streets and sidewalks are completely clear and the snow is getting blacker by the day. now it's time for it to melt! I shouldn't complain since we have had a lot of sun lately. & I'm sure I won't like it when it starts raining this week either. then again that means the snow will be gone. have a great monday everyone - regardless of what type of weather you are having.

That looks like where I live. It's time for fresh snow or spring. One of the two. :)

I think the weatherman said we will have more snow this week Lily! This is turning out to be a long winter.

Everyone is sick of winter!

«Louis» likes the light on the buildings - nice contrast to the black snow.

My area is surrounded by piles upon giant piles of "dirty snow." It's a stark reminder of the residue that gets washed away every day that we never see or think about...

Nothing sadder than black snow. I'll be glad when it's all gone, no matter what the color.

Very 'a propos' photo.

There may be lots of piles of snow and some of it is black, but you cannot miss the beauty that you captured in this photo, the colors are phenominal.

the sunlight is lovely against the buildings
I have been trying to crop dirty snow out of all my shots but it's getting harder, it's all dirty

Amazingly the snow here in the city has all melted .. only the parks still have that sparkly white stuff ... nicely shot!

Just think we all breathe all that black stuff that is sticking to the snow. Rain is forecast and will wash it all away, I'm for that.
Ignoring the snow, the picture is great, nice contrasts.

yeah, no one loves snow more than me, but...even I will be happy to see the mountains of black snow melt away....

Gosh! There's the Farmingdale train station! I know it because I drew it as an art exercise!

To answer the comment you wrote on my blog, I grew up in Massapequa, but I'm also very familiar with Farmingdale. I had relatives there, I drove through the town to get to work when the highway was congested, and I biked in it and through it, sometimes on my way to the polo grounds, other times on my way to work.

Anyway, very nice lighting on that photo!

The light is beautiful in this shot. But I'm with you—enough with the piles of ugly black snow already!

Well, I'm always on the lookout for something "blog-worthy" so I figured I'd publish the pencil sketch I did of that train station that's featured in your photo.

Here's the link, if you're interested:

All the best!

A boring weather: neither too bad because it's cloudy but warm, nor too good: it's still raininin on and off...

A wonderful picture with the light side by side with the white of the snow,
