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!

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!
