Weeds at Sunset/ Sky Watch

Last Sunday evening over an East Gwillimbury field

Yes, the white you see here is new-fallen snow. March here in Ontario means sometimes it snows, sometimes it rains...and YAY! Sometimes we get some sun.

Wow, what a contrast: the heat in the colors of the sky and the cold in the colors of the snow on the plants. Very interesting image. :)

Judy said...

I love the contrast! We just had some new fallen snow, but the sun is out today so hopefully it will melt :)

Dimple said...

Hi! The colors in this are beautiful, and here in northern Idaho, March means the same as it does where you are.

Thanks for your comment on "Leaf." I am pleased to know I have shown the interest in mundane objects, it is part of what I enjoy about photography!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

One of your best sunsets, EG! The snow-dappled weeds up against that red-warm sky...superb!

Re you comment about the camera at HITS...there were two female photogs there with essentially the same gear...it appeared they were shooting Canons...I'd guess the cost of the camera and that lens to be somewhere around $8,000.

Great angle you caught that on. Absolutely gorgeous! All we got was snow, snow and more snow:(

Beautiful sky! I never get tired of looking at sunsets and sunrises. :)

That's beautiful!

Oh, no, I never tire of sunsets or sunrises either and this one is breathtaking! I love the way the snow looks like blossoms! Such terrific composition as always! And, as always, it's a delight to visit your blog! Have a wonderful weekend!

What gorgeous colours! It's just finished snowing here too...

It is so strange to see snow still lingering in so many place. Here it is cold but sunny and the spring seems only a few days away.

Nice to have snow AND sun!

Very lovely! :) Yes, March here at our place is some of this and that, too.. :)) Today it has snowed here! :)

Craver Vii said...

I like the sunset colors of course, but I also like the way the evening colors gives the snowcapped plants a cool violet hue.

LauraX said...

such lovely color reflected onto the snow from that magnificent sky!!!

RedPat said...

Fabulous colours! It was a pretty snow last weekend.

Jan said...

Wonderful shot. At first I thought that the white was cotton, but that didn't make sense, given your location.

jo©o said...

Hot and cold...
Maybe you an give the snow a yellow glow and turn it into flowers:-)

Riet said...

So special the snow and the beautiful coloured sky. Great shot.

Crafty Green Poet said...

what a beautiful sky, lovely contrast with the snow as well

Kerri said...

Gorgeous sunset!!!

Kay L. Davies said...

At first glimpse it looked like sunset over a cotton field. Then I recognized the snow - same stuff we have melting out here right now, but another cold snap tomorrow, so we'll have ice where we now have puddles.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful sky!

It is almost like you have two shots in one here: one the warmth of the sun, and the frigidness of the snow. The way the snow is sitting atop the weeds makes me think they are wearing little white caps. the contrast is absolutely beautiful. This is one special photo. Have a nice weekend. .

see you there! said...

I've never seen a prettier bunch of weeds.

Beautiful combination of warm-colored sunset and snow. Nicely captured.

Same here, the sun is so intensely bright in the daytime and sunset is so colorful, but sometimes it still snows even in March.

LĂșcia said...

Stunning sky!!!
This is a very interesting photograph, cold and warm at the same time.
Great shot! ;-)

Life Ramblings said...

love the different shades of colours in the sky.

Nicest looking weeds I've seen in a long time!

Wonderful perspective, lovely colors.

VioletSky said...

Love the colours. Even weeds can look good when capped with snow in a brilliant sunset!

Stephanie said...

Love the way you took this photos and the colors are spectacular. The snow on the plants give it a nice texture.

Randy said...

It really looks like a cotton field. Great shots.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love the contrast between the colorful sky and ever so slightly tinted snow.

Love the color contrasts in this capture. We have been getting snow in March as well.

Wow,that is so gorgeous.

Hildred and Charles said...

What a pretty picture, - gorgeous colours and the white puff balls of snow.

Ann said...

how much longer will the snow last. They look like princess Anne lace.

forgetmenot said...

Amazingly beautiful--WOW. Do you just stand outside 24 hours a day waiting for a "perfect" sky! I'd say you captured it. Yes, try Picnik--you click here and there and "see what you get". Lots of fun. Have a great weekend. Mickie

Serline said...

I can feel such a warm glow inside me just gazing at this... have a blessed weekend!

The plants in the fore ground really make this picture, well done.

Wren said...

Not only beautiful but also intriguing. The snow layered on the top of the plants is so unusual.

Lyndsey said...

Wonderful colors in the sky.
I hope the last snow will melt soon, so you'll have real springtime too.
