“North Winds Blew”

Not that long ago, on one of those wet and snowy kind of days. I ventured out to get in a few shots of the snow. The wind had been coming in straight from the North, and what started out as a cold rain from the previous night, turned into a very heavy snow.

You can clearly see how the snow has collected on, and stuck to one area of the tree trunk, and left a bit of an empty spot with grass showing directly behind it.

I first processed this image in color, but as you can see, there really isn’t much color to be had. So I then decided to do a black and white version. I thought I’d post both of them up here for you to see.

To me what I love so much about these two simple images is the fact that you can see exactly where the storm came from, or at least where it landed, and also the winter wonderland of snow covered branches in the background!!

I keep thinking, and hoping, that I’ll be posting fresh and new spring images of nature, and landscapes, but so far spring, although it has come by the calender, it hasn’t quite made its way to my area yet!

As I gaze out the window while writing this. I have snowflakes swirling around outside, and dark heavy clouds looming in the distance. We shall see what that will bring!!

Winter in color.
Winter in color.
Winter in B&W.
Winter in B&W.

  1. This is so very familiar for us too, Rachel. Very evocative images of the bleak landscape. And strange to think that 12 months ago instead of 2C it was 20C. And no let up this side of Easter.
