Snow, Ice and Clouds.

Monochrome Monday is going down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. One of those mornings where there was some interesting clouds over the bay but very little colour in the sky as the sun came up.

I noticed the similarity between the patterns in the snow and ice on the bay and the patterns in the clouds and tried to find a composition that balanced the two with the idea of a monochrome conversion.

Actually, quite a small section of Last Mountain Lake at sunset in winter. Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.

Last Mountain Lake, also known as Long Lake, is approximately 93 km long but only 3 km wide at its widest point.

The northern section, where this shot was taken, is the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area. The area is a major staging ground for Snow Geese on autumn migration along with other wildfowl and Sandhill Cranes.
