Bleak is Beautiful

In winter, the bare, the barren and the bleak offer a different perspective on beauty.


This is true in the city.


And it is true by the ocean.


It’s true up close.



And it’s true from a distance.



Always beautiful.

    Miles Davis, slowly toot your horn to these bleak is beautiful pics.

  2. Such beautiful photos. Again we’re on the same wavelength. I took some pictures on Tuesday for a post about barebones beauty of winter. I plan to post it the week of the 27th. Hope you’ll check it out.

    Fabulous – great photos specially love the gulls and the fence or boardwalk all blown about and tangled – great comments, a wonderful post. Thanks Melissa.

    • There’s a lot of tangled-up stuff about, thanks to Sandy. Hoping to post more. Those gulls were in a real little feeding frenzy – would love to know what school of little fish had come in close to shore and swimming close to the surface to stir them up so.

  5. I like it when winter strips down to the essentials.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. I love the pictures, too! That close-up of water droplets is wonderful.
