Seems cold to me too, Melinda, but whoever has this much wood stacked sure is ready for it. Like the red contrasted with the warm tones of the stacked wood and the crisp division between them.

I was driving a country road when I saw this; it's possible the farmer is planning to sell some!

The clever title and description brought an immediate smile to my face and of course I love the simplicity of the palette and composition. Very well done.

Thanks Nikki!
Although it's not one of my favorites, I do like it and thought it projected the BP "style..." Glad I was right about that!
