Color and Texture of Tree Trunks in Winter

At first glance the winter landscape looks so desolate, monotonous and colorless. However, I find that once my eyes/mind get tuned into the trees, their trunks and bark, I see abundant subjects of interest. Here are photos of the great variety that caught my eye one day in early January in Edmonton.

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.

Reaching Upward

The autumn season is also when the riverĀ  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:
