That’s beautiful. Makes it look all the more awesome with the snow
Picture perfect, looks like a postcard x
That’s really beautiful! I certainly think that b & w images have much more impact than colour ones.
Wow, it’s really snowing where you are. Striking image.
amazing snow scene shot…that tree looks fab
A really fabulous shot! So peaceful!
So jealous! Looks superb.
OOOOh I love this very atmospheric
So effective as a B & W shot. Although lovely and sunny here in Cornwall I would love to have some snow sometime!
Such a fabulous winters scene. I love the way the tree leans x
I love the heavy sky thing.
the sky looks like its got a whole heap more coming your way!
Wow, that is stunning!
Really beautiful, but it does make me feel cold.
Beautiful. Love the way the big tree looks like it’s bowing down in submission under the weight of the snow!
So beautifully framed, and exquisite in black and white. Are you converting from digital color? What program are you using?
Oh David, there’s a question. Yes – I use a Nikon D90 and take everything in colour. Only shoot in jpeg not RAW. I have Photoshop Elements installed on my computer but have never actually used it because I haven’t made time to find my way round properly. At the moment I just use an online editor called PicMonkey. It would be very laborious if you had a lot of photos to edit because you have to upload them individually and then save back onto your hard drive, but for the occasional one that you want to tweak it’s very easy. I only use the free version – which allows you to play with contrast, brightness etc -but you can pay per month to get a ‘Royale’ subscription which allows you more tools and textures. I’m a completely instinctive photographer and editor though – I just mess around until things look kinda how I want them to, with little understanding of how I made that happen. One day, I will learn about it all properly… one day!
