Winter Tower Sprouts

We had a storm, if you can call a half-inch of snow a storm, Thursday morning. Driving past the water tower, I couldn’t help but snap a few photos.

The tower reminded me of crocus sprouting though the snow in early spring. And since the groundhog saw his shadow and spring is only moments away, I thought it was fitting. (or am I really stretching the IF idea?)

Great job Ian. Love seeing the painterly aspect unhidden here, and the strong colors you used. Nice interpretation.

Not a stretch at all! Very clever and of course I love buildings and the like so I think it's genius and your colours are sublime!!!
