Icicles

After around 48 hours of snow over the Christmas holiday it warmed up and rained for a few hours before the temperature dropped again. As a result there was some large icicles forming in places when I went for a walk yesterday.

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #57 Photo Challenge. With four drops of water, ice and snow on conifers in the background I’m well covered on water for challenge.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 14th December 2020

Monochrome Monday is traveling back to a walk around the neighborhood in late November. I took this photo of raindrops on bare branches and edited it for a blog post at the time.

I never used it as the colour balance looked odd to me. Weeks later I realised that the photo was about the reflections of the sky in the raindrops and there was no need for colour in the image.

If I had taken the photo in my film years when I was shooting black and white film alongside colour I would probably have reached for the camera loaded with black and white film. It would be nice if I could get that ability to “see” in monochrome back.
