Swear if I didn't know better I would think these are pencil drawings . Lovely work.
I like this series. For all the time I lived in snow country I never tried a shot like these. I lean towards the first one with the intersecting fence lines.
the pencil effect is largely down to the heavy snow that was falling. The 3 images that I have produced are fairly close to ooc images.
Alan "I like this series. For all the time I lived in snow country I never tried a shot like these" I have been experimenting with minimalist and/or high key images for the last year. I used to produce very busy landscapes and will post some tomorrow. Ken
Very nice set with a nod to the first.
Wow Ken! Simply amazing work here, these to me are fine art photography. I have seen similar types of shots through the years and have always wanted be able to shoot something similar. It's a bit hard to capture scenes like this in sunny Southern California. Usually I get up to Yosemite during the winter, but Yosemite Valley is a rather crowded location in terms of trees and rocks and doesn't really have the open space where a few trees could get separated.
The couple of times a year I get into an active snow storm I spend too much time deciding if I want to shoot with a fast or slow shutter speed. Because a fast shutter speed turns the snow into dots as you know, and the slower shutter speed can turn the snow into streaks or even disappear. Do you have a preference when you are shooting these as to which way you are going with your shutter speed?
If I can get some snow when I am in Colorado this winter, I think I will try to find some open fields I can try this at.
Jim I have been trying to take single trees and groups of trees in misty conditions for months and not really succeeding so I already had thoughts about how to frame trees so when the snow came I walked up the hill about 1/4 mile to here. I really did not think about shutter speeds and snow trails but will in the future. I suspect that the best shutter speed for snow trails will depend upon wind speed, how heavy the snowfall is and focal length. I know that 1/125 @70mm produces an unpleasant effect.
We do not get snow very often but when it comes it is either miniscule and not worth photographing or, as here, deep enough to stop all movement so local, on foot, shots. I will post more snow shots in the future but will change to my more usual style and show everyone more of Cumbria. Ken
Excellent work! Fine series!
I love these images you have been posting, Ken.
I sure also like that last one you posted in the reply to me Ken. Incredible leading lines.
I am definitely looking forward to seeing your more normal Cumbria photos, you have my mouth watering!
