The Christmas festive season is over. Our guests have left and , after cleaning up, its time to post another image. Last week I took a picture of this porch. I liked the red and white banners moving softly in the breeze. They added some colour to an otherwise grey Wintery day.
It is of course still a busy time. Have not gone out to take photographs so Looked in my files and came across this image I made early December 2009. This year , of course we have had much more snow and the lake is frozen. However i liked the picture and decided to share it.
Just down the road is an old farm. I have posted other pictures of this place but I had to photograph it again in the fog, which was the important element turning this landscape into a beautiful romantic image.
It was quite foggy today so, of course I had to go and visit some of my favourite sites to take advantage of this weather. I made quite a few nice images but, like this picture, you have to be very careful not to lose the subtle grey tones. It is too easy to go too contrasty, so you simply lose that special atmosphere created by the fog.
Lots of snow today. Again I am posting a picture from my files, actually going thru my pictures I like many of my older images. I made this picture near Lavigne . Just a touch of colour in an otherwise monochrome landscape gives the image a visual impact.
Another image from my picture files. This time a Winter landscape, which I took in 2007. I posted a picture of this farm in colour but I prefer the graphic quality of the black and white interpretation.
Busy times at the moment so I decided to brows my picture files. I took this picture last Winter on a small country road near Perth. I loved the busy textures of the tree and branches reminding me of some of the iprints by the old Japanese print maker Hokusai.
Coming back from our weekend in Ottawa, we drove through some heavy snow squalls. Of course you can expect that at this time of year. While on the road I like to take pictures which are added to my file of road images. It is becoming a quite interesting portfolio.
It is a busy time, which has not allowed me to go out and take pictures. Anyway I took this picture a few weeks ago. I have never seen a camper like this one but I liked it so here is the image of this strange vehicle.
