How beautiful!! We just do not experience winter down here in Texas like ya'll do! So pretty but I imagine it can seem like a long time til spring. The wind is blowing down here in Texas but it is in the 70's! I have read that every room needs something red in it! I think I may have that in my house - not necessarily on purpose, though!
I never thought of it that way but you are so right. Our eyes are always drawn to the red!Your photos are lovely!
How very beautiful!
It is amazing how a spot of red makes a picture so much more appealing to the eye. Same with family or group photos I've learned--well, really any photo. Sorry you are so iced in. Be glad to share some of our warmer temps!
Beautiful!!! Our ice storm ice is melting in above freezing temperature we are having. Have a wonderful week.Jen
The red does pop, lovely images! The heavy rain we had yesterday washing away all of our snow and ice. We are finally warming up.. Wishing you a warm and happy week ahead!
How pretty!!!! Thanks for sharing. Blessings
Beautiful images, Vee. I have been drawn to this most fascinating colour all of my life! Who knew...Have a lovely week!Poppy
Red is great especially against your icy snowy backgrounds.Very nice...
Red is warming colour, it looks good against ice and green.Merle....................
I didn't know that about the eye being drawn to Red, but I sure love it!Your photos are beautiful!
You say ice storm so calmly too. I would be pacing, praying and just plain fretting. Love that you still had some leaves on a tree that are now encased in ice. xo
I like the pictures. My favorite color is red. Our "estate" is even called Red Bird Acres. It combines my two preferrences: the color red and wild birds. God bless. ~:)PS: Y'all keep that ice storm up there, 'k? It's warmed up and sunny here and I'm likin' it! *ha ha*
Red always seems to pop out at ya...my favorite times are when I see the cardinals...they are always so bright and pretty against any background- snow, greenery, even dull browns or grays. Nice collage!
How dreadful! I hope it has a chance to melt. I know those are leaves on a tree but they don't look real. I keep going back to look again. Stay warm and safe my friend! Sending you some warm hugs, Diane
Oh they're real. Real oak leaves, which cling until the new leaves push them off in the spring. Oak leaves are highly indestructible...they don't break down.
Now that's a new way to look at things including ice! :)
Simple but beautiful!
Beautiful photos Vee, we actually warmed up this weekend to the 40's but it's going to get cold again in a couple days :>( I know I'm always drawn to red!
Red is a very welcome sight in this dreary landscape. Or when the landscape is covered in white. Beautiful photos!As to your question on how to tame kittens, it takes a lot of time and patience. I usually have plenty of one and not nearly enough of the other. :)
These photos are wonderful Vee. I especially love the one with the oak leaves clinging to the tree.
brrrrr....I like a little snow here and there but ICE isn't my thing....UNLESS.....it surrounds RED !!
Pretty! It was 60 today!
That is why I am drawn to red berries when I am driving down the road. I learned something. Valerie
Do you suppose that's why red is my favorite color?! Ice storms are beautiful, but not fun if we have to be outdoors or drive. Your collage brings out the beauty.
Beautiful winter shots.
Red certainly does draw the eye, and in your thumbnail on my blog I thought you had photographed a ladybug.
I love it! The oak leaves against the icy background is beautiful as are the red berries. Has it melted? The rain last night plus 50F temperature melted the ice and some snow too. Beautiful mosaic Vee!!
Lovely! The photos are beautiful.Deanna
Really nice pictures!! That red really pops out.
Oh- Isn't that cool? Now that I say that I guess it can be taken literally! GREAT photos, Vee. You have a good eye...or two good eyes...whatever----xo Diana
The red really pops out at you - and there's something so beautiful about a flash of red, whether cardinal's wing or berry, in the winter landscape.
Art appreciation - a great subject! You are right we are drawn to red - I hadn't ever learnt that.These are stunning images Vee - the berries on the railing is my favorite,Lovely to see you at MM today!
red certainly draws the eye - is that a frozen red berry? Stay warm and have a great week.
Stunning images - and I love that pop of red in them - the eye really is drawn to it!
The red really does pop !
The ice does make for some beautiful photos...made even more beautiful with the pop of red!
I love yours reds against the ice. Gorgeous!
Nice collage, Vee! My favorite pic is the large one. The leaves left on the tree with the icy tree limbs in the background. My eye is definitely drawn to it!
The reds really pop in winter! These are gorgeous, Vee!
We have a family of cardinals in our backyard. The male's color certainly shows up in the snow!I tell Hubby that the males need all that beauty because the females have a better personality. ;)
Vee, what wonderful shots of that ice! It surely can be deadly but the beauty of it mesmerizes me! I love, love. LOVE the color red too!
Beautiful, cold, very cold, icy shots!Mary
The red really does attract the eye. Beautiful images, cold though they may be.
I love the red in the ice - so pretty.
