I get what you mean Meow, winter's nice and all but sometimes the white combined with the grey of pavements and such can be a little dull.
You really prefer vibrant colours like above right? :D

A lone SD40-2 idles by a railroad crossing one late, rainy evening in 1998.

It's a dreary, damp, draughty, dismal day for a linesman working on the trackside wiring in Central London. (A wee bit dangerous too!).

Well some things in our lives may be dreary, but it's important to put those things aside, move on, create new interests, talk to people, travel and visit places you've never been before. This screenshot is part of a new route I'm creating of the Devon Coast in England and a great place to visit. This may not fit the theme of 'dreary' because I don't look for things that way.

1 for Jacksonbarno. Makes my think of N.E. weather in late Feb when everyone is itching for the Spring thaw.

Stevelerro - captured the "dreary" very well.

Excellent shots folks.
Was difficult to choose between pietroli and stevelerro, but felt stevelerro nudged past as was a bit more dreary.

Stevelerro

Also, did this come to anyone's mind when they saw the theme?

Hello , my vote goes to:

sp9813

for his way of creating very détailed shots in desert, it seems nothing , but there is a lot of work to find the correct ocjetcts at the right place... Smooth and quite sad

Cheers, Marc
