41 Day 217 – Black and White Winter

Finally winter has arrived here in Leicestershire and although it got off to a slow start it has continued to snow over the weekend and is still falling hard as we speak. Yesterday I decided to risk it and drove over to a local country park although the roads had been cleared and so it was quite a picturesque drive. The park looked beautiful although the sky was still heavy and grey, and soย  I made the most of the quiet (think most had decided to stay at home) and took a steady walk round before it got too cold to shoot! Here is just one of the shots, as I may not get chance to shoot over the next few days I will upload some more this week.

    • Hi James and thanks once again for your support. Its the first time Ive really photogrpahed snow and it was more challenging than Id thought! Trying to keep definition whilst keeping the white bright! Thats why I went for simplicity! Hope youre having a good week so far!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and for the comment, its really great to try new things and so this was a step away from the usual winter landscapes, have fun trying it!! i will watch for your post!

      • Thanks for the follow….it might be the weekend though till I can get out to experiment again with the camera ๐Ÿ™‚ I got a new one at Christmas and am still getting used to it…so it feels like everything I try at the moment is new! Frustrating at times, and then suddenly I get a good setting, producing a cool shot and then its smiles all round ๐Ÿ™‚

      • That’s what it is all about, just getting out there and trying things until you get a result that you like, the most important thing is that u have fun! I look forward to reading your blog!

  1. Thank you for visiting my Blog. The snow here in Sussex has almost gone but for a while it looked truly beautiful. It’s the most lovely subject to photograph and I look forward to seeing more of your pics. Don’t get lost while you’re out there will you?

    • Once again thankyou! Its always fun to try something different, its what you see at the time that makes it special, just a moment of simplicity, I drive past that spot now and think of this image!
