Winter On The River – Photo of the Week

This week’s Photo of the Week is of some of the elegant landscape Mother Nature creates with a snowstorm. Last week she walloped us with another blizzard – more of the wet, sticky snow we had at Christmas time. This sticky snow coats the tree branches, creating beautiful nearly-monochrome landscapes.

Photo of the Week – Dandelion in Monochrome

It’s been a busy few weeks and so I missed last week’s Photo of the Week. But it’s back, this time in black and white. I don’t actually shoot many monochrome images, but this was a good reminder of how converting an image to monochrome (or shooting it in monochrome) can completely alter the image. In this case, the lack of colour focused more attention on the lines and shapes in the image – the things that intrigued me and motivated me to make images of the dandelion seed head in the first place.
