December Color on a Steel Gray Day

17 12 2009

Sue at Life Looms Large each month asks for photos capturing colors of that month.  Tough mission for me in December, as Historical Markers never seem to change color.  However, I’ll submit this one taken on an overcast December day.

Abbott Bridge Abbott Bridge, Pelham

It’s a full size image, click to see it all.  The earth tones deepen lower on the bridge from the rising and falling of the river, and then further in the reflection.  A splash of rust from a windblown pile of leaves at the far end, a pine tree across the river and clinging snow signal the oncoming winter.

The bridge was built in 1837 without mortar, and in the full size image you can see the intricacies of the stone work.

That’s a beautiful photo! The bridge is beautiful, and the overall mood of the shot is great.

Thanks for joining in the color challenge!!!


PS: Thanks also for the stone wall/cellar hole post. I have follow up questions which I’ll ask you in there once I get my thoughts somewhat together!

Hi. I found you via Sue’s “Colors of December” photo challenge. Very nice photo and I think, typifies December colors very well.

Lovely Mike and yes, there is a lot of history in New England lying in forests and fields. I have always marveled at the sheer numbers of stone walls found on an amble just about anywhere in VT or NH,
and western MA too for that matter..

Thanks all for the kind words! I just run around with a Cannon Powershot and am no means a pro. If you would like to see some amazing pictures, check out “The Daily Portsmouth” under New Hampshire Blogs in the sidebar.

Thanks again!
