Forest After a Light Snow

The bridge project is done, which means that I’m seeking new material to photograph as the case rate of coronavirus climbs in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. I had Election Day off and explored Sheldrick Forest in Wilton, NH. I was surprised to find they had received a light coating of snow that morning.

I liked the top shot because of the vertical lines of the trees and the diagonal of the hillside in the background. Black and white photography really brings out the lines and shapes. I chose color processing for the image below. I like the different colors of the bark on the trees and the leaves in their fall color. I have some other images to share in future posts and really enjoyed the trails there. I’ll be back.

    I like all the little branches sticking straight out from the tree trunks. What kind of trees are they? B&W looks great, but that splash of yellow leaves is pretty, too.

    Chris, I love the B+W picture! Those vertical lines against the steep slope of the land. Brilliant. Any wolves about? I’ve just been reading about their re-introduction in Yellowstone as there is a possibility (unlikely) they could be introduced to some parts of the UK. Lynx are more likely! However, wolves were introduced into the Netherlands without problems!

    I love the symmetry and snow in the first shot and the color and textures in the last shot. Really super job with these Chris! I hope your work week is winding down nicely.

    I think every company should give their employees the day off to vote. Not just to participate in the democratic process, but also to escape from the anxiety that can sometimes surround theses days or in the case of this November the week.

    I may as well have had to day off for how little work actually got done. I would have much preferred escaping into the wilderness with a camera over frantically refreshing the NYTs.

    Best wishes and really enjoyed the bridge project!
