Monochrome Monday – “Awash in a Sea of White”

“Awash, In a Sea of White”

This was a bit of a theme for me last week as I was out making photos. Soft, pure, snow blanketed the fields and open spaces during my extended hikes. The low angle of the sun in the winter sky accentuated the shadows.

As I reviewed the many images I realized that as mono images and without context these images could be of almost anything: water, sand, cloth, foam, or soft clouds. What I liked most about this particular image was the gentle flow punctuated by a few coarser areas.

In reality, I am just happy to be able to capture accurately what I’m seeing. Snow is a real challenge and I have to fool my camera on exposure, especially on bright days.

  1. It’s very beautiful, Ed. Simple but very effective, and a fabulous idea! I would not have guessed that it was snow until you stated so. It could even be an aerial shot high above a desert.

  2. Viewing this on cellphone and looking forward to seeing it on computer monitor…
