Neodigital Art | Snow and Ice


 

DSCF8786

I took this photograph on Sunday and the light was reflecting nicely off the snow and ice but the moisture in the air was liquefying and so creating a mist. This photograph looks  misty but I did catch that goose in flight. The snow was beginning to melt by then.

This is a good shot of the geese walking on the ice but they were actually going through it as it melted.

This is a close up of those geese and the little duck looks amused!

This canal looked interesting, frozen over with snow on the tow path. There were lots of small footprints on the ice, which shows there is more wildlife around there than we usually see. Farther up the canal to the left is Moorcroft Wood where I’ve taken a few photographs before.

I hope you have found today’s blog and photographs interesting. There are more fascinating blogs on the Home Page.

  1. Winter captures with wildlife, snow and ice are great. You might want to experiment with black and white shots, as winter, especially snow cover really does wonders for those types of shots.

  2. HI Kurt,

    I do the odd black and white or sepia shot or even a blue tint. I gave some of these pictures a very slight blue tint. I found a blue tint was effective when the trees froze when the temperature was well below zero last winter. I am getting much more interested in wildlife and even saw some quite rare birds. It is amazing what we do see if we look for shots. We have seen unusual flowers and trees and identified volcanic shale at two sites. I’ve taken so many photographs of the river that runs past that lake I’m becoming an expert on where it flows to and it’s sources!

    Thanks for the visit and the comment. I looked at your black and white shots of alleys; great shots and very atmospheric.

  4. Wow, I’m getting to feel as if I know your town now. How lovely to see it in all the seasons. I noticed the blue tint and really like it. Well done to combine the coldness of winter with the warmth of the animals in their surroundings.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Not all the town is lovely. A local arts project want an artist and writer to do a commission, basically travel around for 4 days taking photos; then put all the info into a blog; with Facebook page and Twitter. I’m thinking about it! it requires two people though and I’m not that keen on the travelling involved. I would like to show the area in a positive light and put pressure on the powers that be to clean up the graffiti and stop with the ‘traffic calming’!

      It is goo to see nature change as the seasons change and photography does make you notice things more.

      Thanks for the comment.
