Love these transformations brought about by snowfall . . so much revealed by what the snow covers !

@Ronnie 2¢: Thank you :) I am always fascinated by what the snow carves out of scenes we would just normally pass by without taking any notice.
Nice presentation of the white wonderland !
12 Dec 2010 8:40am
All this white snow... it recovers everything with such poetry, shapes and forms are not totally recovered, but re-designed in contrasts and shapes. That's really extraordinary.

@Florence: Thanks so much for your thoughts Florence :)
superb winter mood ! Love the symmetry here ! the benches covered of snow, and the patterns of trees !
12 Dec 2010 9:05am
What a simple yet most charming composition! So perfect too is the tonality to enhance the mood! Beautifully lyrical and poetic, as always!

@hugo poon: Thanks so much Hugo. I always feel there is much to discover during the colder months.
Very different from your usual work – I love it. Great control of light and expert usage of b&w!

@Arnd: Thank you Arnd :)
Really, do you think so? I guess I'm just too close to what I shoot to see it being different.
Truly B&W, a very graphic image embrace the season.

This winter scene is great as a high-contrast black and white. Very nice. I like the balanced composition.
12 Dec 2010 3:42pm
@David: Thank you. Yes, it was that balance that drew me to this. It's there all year 'round, but seems more pronounced covered in snow.
Simple, therefore beautiful.

Superb ! Great white !
12 Dec 2010 6:27pm
I have not the impression it is snowing on trees and bench, I have the impression it is a black composition of curves and lines on a white page. Wonderful realisation !
12 Dec 2010 7:46pm
Excellent winter image.

awesome and cold shot, grea peaceful atmosphere here
13 Dec 2010 8:57am
They almost seem in 3D, underlined by black or by white ? Like a drawing in bright light. Inviting benches despite or thanks to the amount of cottonesque snow. Let's sit. It feels so calm... Have a very calm & nice week too*
13 Dec 2010 9:24am
I love the graphic effect given by the black bench and branches in the whitenessf the snow!Superb!

Good grief that's a lot of snow. I like how you captured it piled up and adding to the patterns.

Very beautiful symmetry especially in B&W! Love those patterns.

Rarely, the campaign offers such a symmetry, completed and not need to force itself to make of the NB !
It's impeccable !

A magnificent three-dimensional image. Nature in three dimensions with a large symmetry asdémás imposed to force our consciences. A stimulating balance between both sides! Best regards, Adela
