painting and photographic works

Usually Colorific, but Not This Time

Autumn is famous as the season of glorious displays of color, but that doesn’t have to be all that intrigues a photographer at this time of year. Here are some black and white images of what has caught my eye this early October:


Strong Verticals

Especially on a wet fall day the strong contrast of tree trunks makes for a dramatic image.


Near and Far


Wet Corner


Reaching Upward

The autumn season is also when the river  is at its lowest level, exposing sandbar “beaches” not normally seen. And those beaches reveal some interesting forms, very suited to black and white (or mostly monochromatic) presentation:


Sandy Beach


Waves in the Sand


Under the Bridge


Verticals and Horizontals

The above photos were all taken October 1st and 2nd (2016), in the river valley in Edmonton, Canada.
