Monochrome

Dreary skies have turned the few hints of spring color into monochromatic tones. Wisdom comes slowly, but it finally crept into the consciousness with the message: "Embrace."

Along the West River trail yesterday, I embraced what was given - images taken in monochrome. A few of those tentative trials ...

"Ice Out"
"Erector Set"
"Deadfall"
A pond along Middle Road hosted a pair of Hooded Mergansers and invited a "little sit" as they preened and fed. So I sat and took in the color they offered ....

Even on gray, rainy, spring days, there are blue skies to be seen, if we but look.
