20180207-13 Snow and sunlight

We enjoyed several days with interesting sunlighting.  Here are some examples:

Snowballs rolling down the hill …

Oft-photographed tortured white pine …

Oft-photographed Twin Rivers is starting to freeze over on February 7th …

Notice how those shadows guide your vision …

Big Lake …

Beginnings of a sun pillar just north of Big Lake on Hwy 529  at 5:11 PM …

A minute later clouds cover the Sun, giving a Tom Thomson effect to that dead Jack Pine.

At 5:20 PM the sun pillar had re-appeared …

5:28 view from the road into Byng Inlet with a light snow flurry passing through the area.

Mixture of lighting:  natural sunlight, incandescent, LEDs…

This requires double clicking or spreading to see the structure in the snow and in the water …

Afternoon shadows helps to bring out texture …

Twin Rivers is almost frozen over on February 10th ..

Compare the shadow guidance in the following image (Feb 10th 5:09 PM) with the guidance in the earlier (Feb 7th, 5:04 PM) one up the page.

(Yes, I waited for a few minutes until the dead tree and shrubs in the foreground were illuminated.    Did it work?)

Some more snow textures …

Animal tracks add interesting stories to many photos  ….

The gnarled White Pine again.   This time with tracks.

The blog is almost up to date (Today is Feb 22nd).  Hopefully we’ll get it up to date in a few days.

  1. Dear Tom, thank you for those breathtaking Winter views. You and your camera are indeed working together to capture those textures and colours. xoxo
