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.

Snow texture.

Having posted my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge Texture a couple of days ago I went for a walk mid week as it was sunny, a rare event recently. The low afternoon sun was picking up the texture of the snow so took this shot of a Maple leaf on it.

I added a frame using the Snapseed app on my tablet.
