Stark, Still & Quiet

19 Dec
December 19, 2017

It’s a quiet and still December morning. The tree line that I have watched for weeks has finally shed every leaf and now stands stark against the horizon. The winter season is very close and these trees are ready. These two final images each consist of three exposures with a 10 degree shift to the left and right of centre – combined in post-processing and yielding a 7×17 inch print on Epson Cold Press Natural paper.

Limestone Outcrop – Year Four

03 Dec
December 3, 2017

In each of the last four years, I have returned to this nearby Limestone Outcrop to photograph the rocks, leaves and bare trees and printed my images in beautiful black & white. There is only a two to three week window in late November and early December when all of the leaves have fallen and no snow has gathered on the ground. I prefer cloudy bright conditions with no direct shadow to photograph the range of grey tones in this landscape. While these rocks have been here for ages, I always seem to find something new and interesting to photograph each year.

As the leaves fall to the forest floor, the branches and trunks are revealed. This wooded area at the Mill of Kintail is ready for fall photography, not in bright autumn colours but in black & white and on a cold, rainy day.
