Winter Palette on the Tallgrass Prairie

The combined forces of
  • unrelenting winds sweeping in from the Colorado Rockies, 
  • an open door to the polar air from the north, 
  • and generous helpings of snow, ice, sleet and rain---

combine to give a chilly blue, white and grey color palette to much of the prairie during winter months.

[However, in the next post,
 the additions of some creamy salmon shades and even several yellows 
can brighten the scene...]
