Here’s a collection of images from this year – hope your enjoy them. Best wishes for the new year!
I limited myself to images I posted here on the blog. Some were prints that have been selling well, some I liked for the composition or some other quality. Thanks for visiting and commenting!
The dark leaf made a striking background for the bright, mainly cubic frost crystals:
This was on one of the few frosty mornings we’ve had so far, and I almost missed it. I went out in mid-morning, and went deep into the woods to a moist and shady spot where there was still some frost left.
A somber early winter view of Queen Anne’s Lace:
In an earlier post, I mentioned that the brown, black, and white season was coming – it’s here. No white (snow) yet, and only a little frost. November was record-setting for warmth in the Northeast US, December seems like early fall, not winter.
Fall leaf colors can be wildly vivid. This leaf was in shade at the edge of the woods, with a bit of reflected blue sky that came through the leaves.
No added saturation – I reduced the exposure a bit to keep the reds from oversaturating.
