Christmas in the Mississippi Delta

Kathleen Robbins has been adding images to her portfolio of images from the Mississippi Delta and posting them to her Facebook page. Go here for more of her work.

This one looks like a good image for a bleak, damp Southern January morning:

Southern skies in the winter are often overcast, with the dampness making the winter chill penetrate all the more deeply. Its like that today, where I am. This image makes use of that overcast sky and the way the light penetrates Southern forests in the wintertime, when all the leaves are down.

Makes one long for a fire and a dram of whisky, for comfort, while we watch the seasons turn.
