Changing of the Moods

The same tree line.......


....on two different days.



Quite the mood swing.

Now that 2nd one is definitely the RIGHT mood ! Isn't it amazing how such a mood brightens up what would otherwise look SO bleak !

Beautiful shot, and quote, Dawn ! Hope it sets your mood for the coming week.

Both scenes are beautiful.
Still the sunny one is preferable.
Making us hope for spring to come.

Okay -- where did the spruce tree go in the second photo? Not funny to play tricks on this old lady so early in the morning. :)

Quite the mood swing, yes, but equally beautiful!

I like the juxtaposition. (Speaking of mood swings, I thought I was following your blog already. My google settings went haywire when I borrowed my husband's laptop for a while.)

Leah J. Utas said...

Both are beautiful.

Germán said...

Had to go to Wikipedia for the definition of Mood swings: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mood_swing ... And must say your post reflect them perfectly ;)

I love the shot of the trees at different times and I really love the quote. April is almost here. :)

both are lovely! looks like they count on each other for support the way they're leaning into their neighbor's treetops.

Beautiful shots! Both are inspiring. The quote is thought-provoking.

What a great idea! Both are lovely. I love your unique perspectives, so enlightening!

darlin said...

Life is all about perspective and you've done an amazing job showing the difference! Have an awesome week Dawn, I'm going to try to keep up to blogger and this mound of work sitting in front of me, if I don't make it here daily it's not because I don't want to be, it's because my perspective tells me that I must complete this work to get where I want to be in one more year! :-) Take care and lets keep hoping for spring!
