Winter skies around here aren’t blue very often – gloomy gray is the norm, as it was in this scene taken along a road in rural Mahoning County, Ohio. Feeling a bit frustrated at the weather, I jazzed this one up with the Fractalius filter just for fun.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    Looks great jazzed up! I’m sitting here cold in Florida…I can imagine how cold it is where this was taken!

  • Actually, about 33 degrees – took it around noon today! I was wearing a thick sweater, but no coat, so it looks much colder than it really was. Thanks!
