I’ve been a bit busy lately and there has been little time or opportunity to make new photographs. Here are a couple that I made about a month ago.
A little more time next week and the prediction of cooler with snow. Photo opportunities will abound!
This unique sculpture on the Waterfront is the gnomon* of the sundial.
*The part that casts the shadow.
Continuing my little exploration of the monochrome vs colour choice in photographs, here is the same shot in the two modes:
Recently I have noticed a resurgence of interest in monochrome prints.
I published this photograph a few days ago as a colour shot. Here is a Black and White version:
Each version gives a different feel for what was observed. Personal preference again.
Lately I’ve become interested in black and white photographs (again). Sometimes a photograph which is quite ordinary in colour becomes much more interesting when converted to monochrome. These two were made as colour photos on Sunset point the other day.
The rocky shoreline seems a bit less literal in black and white:
Personal preference, I guess.
Shooting the other day at Sunset Point where Lake Nipissing has created a beautiful sand beach. No one was wading but the wind had created the patterns in the sand. The low sun also helped.
Last year at this time there was about a foot of snow on the ground. This year, in typical Northern fashion, November has delivered almost three weeks of “Indian Summer”. Yesterday was quite pleasant:
A bit of ice has formed in the shallow ponding in the foreground.
No ice in the main lake. No snow in the forecast.
I made these photographs while the gentlemen at the dealership were changing my summer tires for snow tires on the car.
The delicacy of winter’s first snow is a wondrous thing:
What do doors say about what or who is behind them?
When the little white flowers of summer go to seed, these seed heads are produced:
After winter passes, the seeds will ensure survival.
Two more frost shots:
Have a nice day!
When frost forms at this time of year, amazing beauty abounds:
Incredibly delicate ice crystals disappear very shortly after the sun warms them up.
Two years ago we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving at our daughter’s place in New York State. This photograph was made at Letchworth State Park, not far from the Pennsylvania border.
We forget how calm and quiet winter can be.
One Mile Bay is close to our place. Sometimes in the morning it is very calm.
It was smooth yesterday morning.
