What a beautiful snow scene! A jewel indeed!

I love this picture and the starkness of winter.

Janie said...

You captured some great light. I love rural sky and barn scenes.

bobbie said...

This scene would be lovely even without the magnificent sky above it.

ilanadavita said...

Awesome photo; as always!

Deborah Godin said...

Yes - opal! Perfect description. It would be a nice synchronicity if that were the birthstone for January, but I don't think it is. I think Opal is in the fall? Great capture!

Dewdrop said...

I love the sky over your wintery barn scene... the colors are wonderful, and the texture, so interesting.

Carletta said...

The variable interplay of the colors indeed suggest an opal sky.
This is really beautiful.
To echo Ms. Hays - we love your photos - always a treat for the eyes and with this one even the soul I think.

Sandra said...

Beautiful, almost magical scenery.

Mojo said...

Gorgeous! In no way do I want to minimize your skill, because you did 'see' the picture, but it would be hard to take a bad photo of that scene.

I've got to try your layers trick with Photoshop Elements while I'm thinking of it!
