Oh I do like sepia

Why sepia? The English countryside in Winter, for all its vivid greens,
its flashes of red berries and orange sunsets,
feels sepia
- an emanation, perhaps, of cold clay soil.

Beautiful! I like sepia too. I don't know why I don't use it more. I think you have more open space as a contrast to the intricate lace works of bare branches. That white branch is very evocative.

But, how do you say it? SEE pee ah, or Sep-ya, other?

SEE pee ah. And you?

That last photo really speaks to me.

I like the fact that sepia was originally made from squid ink. The color itself isn't always my first choice for a monochrome.
