Winter

An icy landscape in black and white

My photo excursion Saturday was a bit disappointing in terms of wildlife. However, I think this capture helped to make up for it. It was pretty cold on the Great Plains as the sun rose, winter’s effects were still very evident in the frozen lake and the ice covering it. The colors of the sunrise were pretty but nothing overly extraordinary however the cool blue of the clouds and frozen water made for a cool scene. Conversion to black and white really seemed to make this image.

A very cold lake front

With morning temperatures down into the single digits I almost didn’t venture out. While cold, the wintry scenes were quite pretty. This one taken at Barr Lake.

Winter white trees and shrubs

A very cold and somewhat miserable start to meteorological spring in the Denver area.  With temperatures in the teens and windchill temperatures pushing down to near zero, I almost had to force myself to get out and take this picture.  I am glad I did.  The trees were all covered in white from the freezing drizzle and snow and while it looked somewhat dreary, it was pretty in its own right.

A cold, gray day along the South Platte River

With record-setting cold in the Denver area at the time this picture was taken, it was not a great day to be outside.  Overcast skies made a walk along the South Platte River a bit dreary.  Converting this image to black and white seems to work week and convey the mood of that cold, dark day.
