Purple and turquoise and gold and WHITE

Posted on January 24, 2010


I love Sunday nights.  That’s when I come home from a long day, kick off my YakTrax and boots, and open up an email from Babs Young.  Tonight she wrote:  This was not taken today, but was taken this winter. It was rather warm today and we lost a lot of snow, but more is promised soon. I like white.

Makes you want to stand up and sing America the Beautiful, doesn’t it?  I love that combination of colors.  I once confided in a friend that I wanted just that combination, plus a dash of green, as the color scheme for my dream house.  She looked thoughtful and said, “That’s too many colors, Gerry.”  In retrospect, I’m pretty sure she was wrong.  Imagine, if you will, a green polar bear sauntering through that scene.  Perfect.  Well, maybe you have to be me.

(Babs says this is her submission in Scott Thomas’s White challenge. So many blogly duties.) 

Every week photographer Babs Young captures moments in northern Michigan, and every week she sends one to Torch Lake Views just for you. You can find more of her photos at the Babs Young Photo Archives and on her Blue Heaven Flickr photostream.
