It is cold with snow patches on the ground, but none of that soft drifting sea of white I was hoping to see. Here is what I have captured so far...
First up, a plowed country lane, deep shadows, edited for that 1950's era look of a Kodak Brownie camera.
Then tried a complex yet simple composition of a leafless aspen grove. All trees vertical save one. Would not want to attempt a crossword puzzle of this image.
Driving higher, found a quiet meadow of unbroken snow field with long afternoon shadows. Tried for that frozen, frigid yet pristine look.
Yes, am experimenting more with black & white photography. But this image needed that late afternoon color to make it pop.
The next morning, waiting for the coffee to brew, looked out and saw the sun peeking thru a hole in the clouds, highlighting a distant mountain ridge.
Going for a minimalist look, edited out the surrounding dirt and weeds, keeping the soft shadow and the golden grass against the white grainy snow.
That's what I have been up to these last few weeks in the mountains while we build up our COVID resistance with the help of two vaccine shots.
See you on down the road. Stay safe, healthy, mask up.
