ABC Wednesday: G is for gray grey

Depending on where you live you might spell it grey or gray. I go back and forth with my grey gray spelling.
Gray doesn't have to be grim.
Gray can hold a glimmer of light.
Garrulous geese can glide.
A solitary goose can gesticulate with its expressive head.
A giant great blue heron towers over the ducks.
On a grey morning two exercisers are pulling on a rope of some kind.
Gray can be gorgeous with its varied tones.
I caught a glimpse of another great blue heron.
Glowing grey water.
The glow grows in the grey.

G is for gazpacho

I agree that grey is not necessarily grim. In fact, I rather like the colour grey. ;))

I always struggle with the spelling of gray/grey.
I never know which is correct.
Beautiful gray photos and lovely grey pictures...

Ruby Manchanda said...

Great gorgeous pictures. Grey need not be dull. And your pictures just prove that.

Brilliant post! Well done, I say, well done!

ChrisJ said...

Oh I so much prefer grey with an 'e'! My dictionary didn't say it was optional. The e makes it seem more poetical. I really love grey as it appears in nature.

Luna Miranda said...

Excellent take on G-day! I really love the reflection of the lone goose in the water, and your scenic shots of the water are always lovely.

And gray becomes fun. One of them, spellings is British I guess. The shot of two exercisers fascinates me.

Omigosh... I just thought of a pile of 50 Shades of Grey puns. D'OH!

Cheri said...

I'm a back and forth grey/gray person myself. Glad to know it's not just me!

Photos are great; I especially liked your gliding geese.

Oh dear, I missed my chance to join the "G" post. Serves me right as it's another way too long one :) In the mean time, I really love these "gray" and "grey" shots. "I, too, waver back and forth between spellings.) You really brought out the gentle hues and mystical beauty of the many shades of black and white.
