The Bright Side of Winter

My last post got some nice comments, and one of them, by ronian42 reminded me that winter is also the moment of nice, bright, low sunlight, lending structure and definition to any mundane objects.Version 2

How very true!

The only problem is that you have to be ready for that ray of light. Grey and overcast are the norm, and the light moments have to be cherished and used immediately.FXE11828

As much as overcast days mean muted colours for me, sun means black and white. But more on that very soon in a longer post!

Meanwhile I enjoy the sun as long as it will last.Version 2

And I love the rendering of that Takumar 55mm f:1.8!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I dunno. Yes colour is “harder” for composition because of distractions so then it depends on the colours and context. Just the other day I was looking at some colour pictures of simple snow landscapes by
    Izumi Shimamura in Japan, mainly because of a little pocket camera I just picked up which I will be putting to the test on the muted colours (and monochromes) of our northern hemisphere in due course 🙂
