401 - Off Color

The difference between a color image and a B&W image used to be … color. At least when I last looked at it yesterday.

Today’s weather is an off-color joke. This image was taken at 3:16pm. We had a bit of snowfall all day, and now the shroud begins to stick. At first I wanted to produce the image in B&W, but then I noticed that it really made no difference, and for demonstration purposes I left it “in color”.

Nikon 18-200 at 105mm, f13, ISO 100 and 1/13s, shot from the tripod with mirror lockup.

The other image, taken with the Sigma 10-20 at 12mm, f8 and 2s is from our garden. It was only this weekend that I recognized how bleak this landscape had become, how naked and barren it looked. The leaves had fallen, everything was prepared for winter …

… and now it is here.

The Song of the Day is “Off Color” from The Microscopic Septet’s album “Surrealistic Swing: History of the Micros, Vol. 2”.

I'm always "in" for those graphic, winter B&W shots. There's actually still a hint of green in the trees (or my eyes simply play tricks on me), so it's no "true" B&W... ๐Ÿ˜‰

A picture to get lost in. Really enjoyed the textures, lines, angles and shapes all repeated over and over again. And those poles rising up out of the fields add that little extra touch. Very nice image Andreas.

Classic fall is over image and I too keep coming back to the poles rising out of all that symmetry.
