The Gloomy Day


This is my gloomy day, photographed just immediately before starting a rain.

Below is "The Gloomy Day" painted by Pieter Bruegel in 1565.

Hmm.. His painting is gloomier than my photo!

Since I've been posting a series of colorful illumination photos lately, it's time to show a simple (and boring) monochrome photo here. Don't you think so?


This is a Outdoor Wednesday, Watery Wednesday, Black and White Wednesday entry.

  1. Yoshi, I don't see it as gloomy so much as moody and introspective. And...Peasant Bruegel was one of my favorite masters when I was a child. I respect the comparison, as both works you've presented here are equally beautiful and moving.

  2. I love the stillness of the water in your shot, great reflections.

  4. I don't find your photo depressing; but rather the approaching storm is renewing, and the simplicity of your photo with its black & white starkness is excellent. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  10. I was trying to find a word - and Luna Miranda found it first: hypnotic. I almost feel as if I am watching and waiting for that first raindrop to hit the water.
