Study in Blue

I did it! I took time out yesterday afternoon for a quick walk outside. I have watched the ice fishermen for almost a week now and it was proof enough that the ice is strong enough to hold me.

The afternoon light was already quite low and nearly ready to disappear behind the western hills. It was enough to add a blue tinge to all the photos I captured. I used my iPhone and exercised no control over the white balance. Once I downloaded the pictures I liked the monochrome presentation and decided not to make changes. It sets the mood for winter… but wait! There was one little contrast high up in the tree: two leaves that survived the record setting strong winds in October and the first blizzard of the year.

The perfect complement to the icy landscape, don’t you agree?

    I love these pictures Anna. The bubbles are really interesting under the ice and the sky is a spectacular colour of blue.

    • Carol, all the images are of ice and snow. There is no sky in this group of pictures. Thanks for your kind words, though!

        Interesting. Now that I take a second look. The first time I looked at it, I thought you were taking the picture of the leaves from the bottom, into the sky.

      • And you are absolutely correct, Carol. the leaves were taken against the trees and the sky. My apologies – everyone else commented on the idce images. Trust you to take it all in. Sorry for the confusion. Hope you are staying nice and warm these days!
