It's interesting though--the view out the glass door onto the deck is of the greenbelt behind the house. Fine and good. At the moment, it's brown, brown, brown, a little gray, a little russet, but mostly brown vertical tree trunks and brown dead leaves. (I'm told in the spring it will be a cacaphony of green.) Look through the trunks, and you see more trunks, slightly less contrasted because of good 'ol atmospheric perspective, so the effect is brown-brown-less saturated brown-until the whole thing finally blurs out to a medium french gray (or just turns into the burnt orange leaf cover.) But because the rain was so intense, the upper reaches of what is normally french gray turned a sort of blue-roan at the top, (really gray, but looking much more blue because of the orange below) a quick and subtle effect of the sort you might do in a painting to suggest rain or overcast clouds but which is surprising in a way to see in physical reality.
It was just kinda quick and neat and wanted to be mentioned. I love it when physical reality acts like paint--you spend so much time trying to get it t'other way that it's sort of encouraging.
