A Winter’s Day

A few weeks ago, I made a little road trip down to Mt. Pleasant, in central Utah on US 89. If you read that post, you’ll know that after spending a little time in town, I drove westward toward Moroni hoping to find some classic old barns and things.

Well, as I was driving back toward Mt. Pleasant to think about wrapping up the day, I had pulled over on Utah 116 to get a shot of an old barn to the south of the highway. I wasn’t especially pleased with my photograph, which is why you haven’t seen it. However as I was getting set-up for the barn shot, I caught this scene off to the north of the highway.

This scene is not far east out of Moroni, UT along Utah 116.

The skies were pretty foreboding most of the day as we’d had a snow storm come through the previous day. As the afternoon wore on, the sky toward the north was beginning to clear, and there were hints of blue peeping through those heavy clouds. And off toward those hills to the north, sunbeams were hitting the ground.

This farmland really intrigued me, especially with that big tree in the foreground contrasting against the heavy, cold sky. So, here is my photograph of a winter’s day in the farmlands around Mt. Pleasant.

And for those of you wondering what the scene really looked like, here is the original in living color.

This is what I saw as I was getting the shot from the bed of my truck.

I like the monochrome version a little more because I think that image does a better job of conveying the feeling of a cold winter’s day out in the country. Let me know what you think.

Well, thanks for stopping by the blog, and I hope this post has made you smile. Stay safe out there and have a wonderful day.

  1. Hi Tim! I’ve been trying to respond to your WordPress postings for several years now, but…every time I sign in to wordpress it takes me to your page, then I see a link there that says I must sign in to post. So, I sign in and it takes me to your postings and I can’t sign in, so i click the link to sign in again, and it takes me to your page and I can’t reply unless I sign in. I’ve done this countless times, changed my password so many times I’ve lost which one is which, yet still I can’t disconnect my “log in” from your posting page that requires me to sign in!

    This is like the tar baby fable.

    1. Hey Ben, how are you doing? I have had a few similar issues when I try to comment on people’s posts other than via the app or the actual WordPress site. I will see if there is an issue on my end.

      Anyway, thanks for reading. I hope you all are well and surviving these crazy times. Hope you’re staying healthy too. It seems the world that we knew back when we met has disappeared. Maybe we have new hope. 🤞 Take care my from friend.
