Took this picture this morning (2015, 08-04)around 10:45am this morning. What a wacky weather we sure are having. Yesterday the snow was beginning to melt away and could see grass at the edge of the driveway. It is suppose to rain this afternoon.

I know this isn't the best image but just thought this would be a good one for Wacky Wednesday, hope you like it. It was brought o my attention by susanlynn, it's a great B/W, and it's the actual colours. I'll put this into the Challenge.

Must view in full to see the hint of green in the pine/cedar trees in the distance. Just because the snows coming down a lot it almost covers the colours.

Brought out more detail in the snow and our lamp post at the front door - using Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 and the downsizing I used, didn't do anything to the colour, that's the real colours.

Thank You So Much in Advance for your comments, most welcomed.

Have a great day, ♥ Skates

Don't underestimate this picture, Pat. I think it is very creative and artistic. I thought, too, it was black and white at first glance...but then noticed the hint of color in the trees. Excellent composition, as well. Good job, Pat.

I think this is a lovely image because the lamps are in sharp focus and make a good contrast to the scene behind which is blurred by the snowfall Pat.

You're a 'lucky' person Pat, having a 'wintry wonderland' in the spring. You know that I'm kidding now. Anyhow a good one for Wacky Wednesday and a proper entry for the challenge.
In the area where I live we had 16 degrees Celsius today and the sun was shining bright. Hope that you won't feel envied now.
Wish you a lot of strength with your shoveling, lol.

It is a good one for WW, Skates. Your area seems to get a lot of snow. Perhaps they should host the next Winter Olympics.
Good one for the challenge.

Susanlyn was right Pat - this is perfect for the challenge and has some wonderful charm for a winter shot.
