Late winter reflections

Our winter has been unusual by normal Minnesota standards.  The snow drought has continued with warmer temperatures, but just when we thought spring was being ushered in on southerly winds we got a snowfall of three inches.  Now that’s not a huge snowfall, but this year it amounts to one of our larger ones.  Since the air temperatures are much warmer, any snow that does come is likely to melt rather quickly.  And so it was with this snow.  As I was driving home the other night I entered our alley and was greeted by this scene.  I don’t normally think of alleys are being prime photographic opportunities, but I was caught off guard this day.  The power poles created a wonderful repetition in the standing water, and the reflection of the colors of the sky created a meandering curve down the length of the alley.

    Alleys are wonderful. Never full of pretense like front yards can be. Just the workhorse paths of our lives.
    I love the repetition of the roof lines.

      Thanks, Joan. Love your comparison of alleys to front yards – so very true!

    Yes, the clouds add to the image. I note no gardening. One recycle bin adds accent? I am enjoying your change of seasons with your images

      Hi Joani — great eyes noticing the recycle bin. What you don’t see is our very own 2-compartment first class recycle bin, nicely painted to match our house! (ok…maybe that’s for a future post) Thanks for your comments.
