A hazy shade of winter

This is what the vineyards look like around here right now. The rain clouds are gone, replaced by a haze, held in place by high pressure. The sun is there, but veiled. That's ok, because the ground is slowly drying out.

Pruned vines and woods stand in a hazy morning, 12 March 2014.

I took this photo exactly two years ago today. You might think I adjusted the color for the sepia-like look. But no, this is how the color came out of the camera on that particular day. It's the haze at sunrise, I suppose, that made the effect.


  1. This photo reminds me of a Van Gogh pen drawing of pollard birches.

  2. I think I have mentioned before I use your photos of the vines throughout the seasons as a sort of calander to remind me of proper seasons and their advances. much thanks for this.


Tell me what you think!
