Wednesday afternoon of week 48 saw me going for a walk looking for details in the snow.
About halfway along the walk I spotted this leaf clinging on to the snow covered branch. I took a few variations of the leaf and snow covered branches but as is often the case it was the first version I picked.
I did a selective colour treatment of it as there was just enough colour in the background to be distracting.
A second shot from my Sunday morning walk during week 44. I was considering this as the pick for week and now I think I prefer this shot.
I was struck by the number of trees initially and then the pattern and complexity of them now that most of the leaves are off the branches.
Continuing my experiments of deliberate camera movement during exposure. For this shot I framed a group of thin tree trunks and panned the camera up in the direction of the trunks as I released the shutter.
The settings for this shot were an exposure time of 1/3 of a second with an aperture of f/5.6 at 100 ISO.
I went for an early morning walk rather than heading off to one of my sunrise locations this weekend. I liked the way the low sun was illuminating patches of the Ivy leaves on the tree trunks.
Variations on a Theme weekly photo challenge. Taken for the weekly photo challenge on a walk this afternoon.
A photo from a recent walk. The tree trunks make me think of legs.
