I snapped these pictures on the 18th of November. I was in the middle of reading Wuthering Heights, with it’s vast moors and storm-laden Yorkshire-grey skies, when I noticed that the wind had picked and the three o’clock sky had turned  dark in an instant. The gloomy sky was the perfect accompaniment to Emily Brontë’s novel, so I immediately grabbed my camera hoping to capture a piece of the moorland here in Ohio.

 

Until Next Time,

Best Wishes & Happy Reading,

Angela

That looks very ominous! How cool that you were just in the middle of reading Wuthering Heights.

Perfect timing. Those are some angry skies, for sure.

Alyce said...

It's hard to believe that's an afternoon shot! Those skies are so dark. I love the second one with the color contrast of the leaves and the sky!

These photos look like what's brewing in our area right now...good reading weather...unless, of course, the electricity goes off :(

That second picture is fantastic - the yellow flowers against the dark sky! The castle like building.... OOH

Lisa said...

Those are terrific - great atmosphere! And I love the deep, deep blue.

Here's my snapshot.

The second picture is particularly Wuthering Heights-ish! I love the building tower.

You did very well capturing those eerie shots. One can really get into the mood of the book can't one?

Louise said...

I don't like Wuthering Heights, but I love your moody, evocative photos.
