Winter – Naturally Black and White

Of course there can be color in the winter landscape, you just might have to look a little harder for it. In this post though don’t strain yourself looking for color as I am featuring 5 black and white photos. Although there has not been a lot of snow in Edmonton in this winter of 2011/12 there has still been enough to keep the ground basically white. On the day I took these images the sun was out and the sky was deep blue – which with a color filter in the black and white conversion, yielded a deep dark sky on some images.

Reach to the Sky

Frozen Bend in the River

Technical Notes: The photos in this groupĀ  were all taken in the early afternoon on January 7th, 2012, near Laurier Park in Edmonton. I used a Nikon D80 with a 18-55 lens and a polarizing filter. Post processing including conversion to black and white was done with the Capture NX2 software.

    • Hi Tracy! Thanks, I do have a number of my photos available for purchase on-line through Red Bubble (http://www.redbubble.com/people/rttalbot). The images are available as cards, prints (plain, laminated, matted or framed) and I also have a few calendars featuring my photos (and a few paintings).
