August 9, 2019; Totensee. The sky was subject to rapid mood shifts: this was shot just fifty-two seconds after the image in the last post.
It was post-processed after arriving home following a week in London immersed in Constable, Turner, and Monet. Rothko too, of course. Inspired by Constable’s clouds, Turner’s unfinished landscapes and seascapes, Monet’s monochrome* winter scenes, and a good dose of minimalism from Mr. Rothko, this is one version of what came out.
It was chilly — the coolest we got in Switzerland. It was humid — the mist was more like fine rain. It was near silent — this moisture in the air absorbed the sound of the nearby road.
And it was gray.

*But not really. All his winter scenes have amazing color in them.
