The weather was so beautiful this weekend (if you ignored the dangerous fog and snow and ice). When fog settles and stays all day in freezing temperatures, this is what happens:

Sunday I went out and snapped some pictures of the trees.

These trees were so heavy laden, the loose evergreen branches were swaying in slow motion under their heavy burden...like they were too old to praise freely anymore, but refused to give up the habit:

A closer view of wind in frosted branches:

This one is my wallpaper today:

There's not much color in these pictures, Adrian, because the only color to saturate was dead pine needles, and they didn't seem pretty enough to highlight. This is just the color the earth was today. The green needles were almost completely covered with frizzle (freezing drizzle).

Oh sure complain about the color ... they are beautiful ... and I only wish I were with you. Try your flash on them .. if it is still the same conditions..... might give you a little surprise or two.

Bummer - they'd be stunning in sunlight and a clear blue sky.

It is just the lack of colour that makes these pics for me...hushed and muted I would describe them as.................On the subject of colour..I am really sad that black and white photography seems to have been lost to the many since the onset of digital....clever folk were really good at picking up the atmosphere in black and white photos...some I've seen were just awesome...so....don't always go for the most colourful pics...soft and muted has a certain beauty about it as well....love em.

On th3 subject of black and white photos.......the very best results were achieved with film.....is it possible to produce really classic black and white pictures on digital....as good as on film :?:


I have seen some very good pictures ..... Ansel Adams was the US king of B&W .. and I haven't seen anything that beats his work yet ... but I haven't seen all that many Digital shots either. I am in the process of reading how to do it with Digital and Adrian's picture while more Sepia than B&W has a big jump on the subject. I am not sure how that would look in pure B&W but I really like what he has.... sepia was the medium in my mind.

How did you get Les' name on your photo? B&W looks great on the picture .. even quick fix.

Connie ... do you remember what the thread was all about? Oh yes ... trees!!! ;)

Les

It is easily possible to get high contrast B&W with digital fotos. Here is a quick conversion of a foto. It's not very good but it will give you an idea.

That comes from clicking the Edit button rather than the Quote button, a potential pitfall for Moderators and Admins. :lol:

I liked this one too. In real life the tree seemed to be leaning into the shot, asking to be photographed.
