Perhaps I should say “winter departs” – somehow spring doesn’t feel imminent until color returns to the landscape. While there was the bit of exposed green moss or grass and blue sky as I hiked Edmonton’s river valley, for the most part everything is a shade of grey or brown.
That said, here are 5 photos that “don’t need no stinking color” to look interesting:
These images were taken in Edmonton’s Dawson Park on 2016 March 25th.
Here is a little collection of black and white photos themed around the patterns and textures of late winter (late February at my home here in Edmonton).
