Maybe this is closer to what the OP was looking for.

Shot today in WNY/Buffalo area.

Right now everything is rather drab in our area.  The grass is yellow and the trees are bare.  Everything is wet and muddy.  I could not find one sign of spring in terms of foliage.  To me, this is what makes the landscape less than attractive.  The sun and blue skies are what looks nice after not seeing much of it for the last 4 months.

You guys are just so wonderful at photography that these cannot really qualify as ugly.
I'm not really sure if my photo is actually a landscape or not, but I am sure it's very ugly. I don't really take care of my yard, so this is the result.

Aha! I had trouble finding out where to post my shot, but this is probably better than my first ideas like posting in "Milky Way" or "Animal Kingdom"... :-P

I'm quite sure that in the area I shot this lurks a farmer/artist/painter with way too much time on his hands.
Yesterday I tried to toss an egg on someone against the wind. Today the yolk's on me.
