Winter has finally made its presence known around here with our first big snowfall earlier this week. I haven't had much chance to go out and shoot, so here's a shot of some bare trees I took last winter at a snow covered soccer/baseball field. I like the silhouetting of the trees against the late evening sky.
It's starting to get a little colder and a little more dreary around here. I was walking around in the fields next to my son's soccer practice a couple of weeks ago and noticed this almost-bare tree with a few leaves still hanging on for dear life. Winter is coming!
When we were in Kelowna last summer, we took a day to wander into Penticton and Summerland to visit the in-laws. There was a playground near their house in Summerland with a couple of areas for my daughter to play in. Nearby, there was this large and obviously old tree. Here's a couple of closeup shots I took of the trunk of the tree, which probably measured 3 feet or thereabouts at its widest.
I also took this opportunity to experiment with some black and white conversions. The results you see here are thanks to the free Aperture presets from onOne Software:
