1st February 2020 Weekend Challenge ‘Grey‘ (Gray)
“Grey is the colour of intellect, knowledge and wisdom. It is perceived as classic, refined, dignified, and conservative. Grey is a perfect neutral that lives between the extremes of black and white.￼” ~ Unknown
This weekend over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts our weekend challenge is our monthly colour challenge.
This month I decided to stay clear of the romantic colours that one normally associates with February, and I went for the complete opposite; I chose Grey.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I search online for an image of water, the images always appear to be blue or turquoise, and it’s exactly the same with picture postcards the colours are constantly enhanced. Not so mine, the waters are as grey and murky as they come!
My first offering is the largest of my field ponds, it used to be a gentle stream, these days it could be described as a small grey lake.
My second offering is a twenty-second clip of the River Wharfe, a river that flows past a favourite restaurant. After parking my car next to the river bank (that was brave of me), and before entering the restaurant, I took a closer look at the water. As I watched, I became mesmerised by the sight and sound of the flow as the grey river sped on its way.
Pictured here under a canopy of heavy grey cloud with not a glimpse of blue in sight is my final grey offering. This view of a local lake is a favourite of mine and where I enjoy taking leisurely walks along the pathways.
And then the sun shines, and before you know it, the clouds disappear and the sky becomes a beautiful shade of blue, and the world looks totally different!
