This picture is for Jo-Ann, who likes my black and white images. Winter has arrived. This week we received our first load of snow. Of course we like having snow for the Christmas season but after about three months of the white stuff we will be looking forward to Spring again.Meanwhile I hope you will enjoy my Winter images.

A last image of Lake Nipissing before it is frozen over for the next few months. This picture has the feel of an etching and reminds me of one of my favourite books by the Japanese haiku poet Matsuo Basho "The Narrow Road to the Deep North" Of course comparison is highly personal and subjective.

Its been a few days since I posted an image. But I am back again and will post more regularly. This picture is for Rachel who sent me avery nice email. She is interested in some technical details. Well I took this picture yesterday on the shore of Lake Nipissing. The wind was very strong. Of course at this time of the year you can expect that. It was impossible to mount the camera on a tripod so it was shot handheld with my Olympus C8080, lensopening F8 and a shutterspeed of 1/250. Hope this is what you are looking for Rachel.

A crisp afternoon walk. The ice on a puddle had been broken by a cyclist burt The curve, the shape and the shadows of the trees just appealed to me.It is always interesting to me how subject and light make me stop and take the picture. Home I looking at the image I try to understand what moved me emotionally to take the picture.

A dramatic picture of Lake Nipissing. Interesting how a camera angle can change the perception of a scene. The light was just right with a dark stormy sky which gave this scene an almost epic connotation. This last word is for my friend Rob.

It has been awhile since I posted an image. Other commitments have kept me from giving some attention to my blog. This picture is for Jo-ann who posted a very thoughtful comment. I am glad she enjoys my images. I have been busy printing black and white pictures so continuing in black and white a picture full of subtle greys accentuated with strong blacks.Hope you like it.
