This afternoon the light was playing an interesting tune on the new fallen snow and my deck. This arrangement caught my eye and I made several images in different ways. The angled shadows of the deck railing newels and the actual newels themselves created an interesting abstract. The planter in front centers the image. The out of focus shadows in the foreground and background give the image depth. I used Silver Efex Pro2 to process the B&W. I tweaked it a bit in Lightroom after importing back in. Snow is a B&W photographers best friend as everything looks like a good image. Snow has always fascinated me photographically and this years Christmas card is one of those images that was really interesting. On the 25th of December it will appear here with my annual Christmas message. If it snowed in your area I encourage you to get out and explore with your camera.
