Frozen Moon

Frozen Moon

 

The moon looks down on us, and sometimes it looks back up. The moon is reflected in the ice at Vermillion Lakes in Banff National Park. After the sun dips below the mountain tops, everything takes on a blue cast.

Frosty Day

Frosty Day

 

On a crisp bright day, the frost can turn the landscape magical.  Sometimes it’s enough just to view a part of it. Longer grasses and weeds are at the edge of a field of stubble near Milo, Alberta. The light burning through the cloud cover makes it look warm.

Frost

Frost

With the colder weather we have been having lately, I thought I’d post an image that showed the nicer side of winter. Hoar frost forms at a point where the humidity is high enough to enlarge the frost crystals on the things that it touches. It creates larger than life twigs and branches on the bare limbs of the winter trees in a white on white environment. One of winter’s more pleasing scenes.

That Oldman River

That Oldman River

The fog changes the quality of the light. It makes everything softer. It dampens sounds and makes the world a quieter place. You have to see deeper into the fog to make sense of what’s in front of you. As you move, things appear out of it, somehow disconnected from our normal reality. The fog makes you closer to yourself, closer to your inner vision.

Winter In The Country

Roadside Winter

Winter has a more pleasing effect on the country landscape. The frost leaves a light dusting of ice on the bushes and on the fence wires. The dark road contrasts the foggy sky. Mostly a rule of thirds composition, I like the simplicity of the image.
