Trees, Snow and Ice – Mid-February Black and White

This past week (middle of February 2012) I have been drawn back to black and white nature photos as I wandered the ravines and river valley in Edmonton. Here are five of my favorite images:

Tall and Bare

Fallen Logs Across the Creek

Black and White Trunks

Shadows Across Frozen Creek

Against the Sun

Do you have a favorite amongst these image? If so, which one and why?

  2. I love number one.
    It just seems to give the impression of going on forever.
    The perspective is amazing and the depth of detail in the tree bark really does it for me.
    As a huge black and white fan I am thrilled when I hear about people going back to the old ways again.
    The contrast and texture would have been lost in colour.

    • Thanks Dave. I am a big fan of color in my art but there is something about the power of black and white that keeps pulling me back 🙂
