winter photography

Cold day in Waterloo County

Another one of my snow, fence lines and winter photos... Waterloo County.  I have returned to this same spot in other seasons, believe it it doesn't not always look like this.  Still, despite the cold, there is great beauty to this landscape.

Snow, fence lines, winter, Waterloo county

Winter Farm - Waterloo Region

One of my favourite photos.   I drove past this on my way to an appointment,  thought about it, turned around and returned to the spot to photograph it.  So glad I did.  This one looks amazing printed on aluminum.

The Making of a Photo - Winter Tree

Many people think photography is an easy form of art but it does take a lot of planning and knowledge of composition and light.

I have driven past this tree many times on the road to Maryhill, Ontario.

It looks different every time!

I am attaching some different angles, taken from different times of year.

Although it looks pretty with colours, it is also a bit cluttered with detail.

Here we see a different angle.... similar to the above but the composition is different.

the black and white look ! but also cluttered and not composed correctly.

and the winter look... but the trees are too far back in the image

Lastly we have the final and favourite version.  I Love the mist, the snow, the leading lines that the snow makes... the composition is good as the trees fill the frame.  the mist creates an emotional feel.  the grasses below the tree are less noticeable (which allows the trees to stand out).

this was one of my earliest "art photos" - just something I did between work appointments :-)

The Creative Day that wasn't planned!

Waterloo county landscape photo by Susan Arness

a post from late november 2015....

Susan here. I had a wonderful day with my camera!

The interesting thing is I didn't set out to take photos but ended up doing so.

I wanted to go to St Jacobs to look around the shops.. and ended up taking the back roads.

This is my favourite photo from today. Its on a Mennonite fruit farm.. you can see the graceful lines of the orchard leading up to the tree on the right. The field has some leftover crops, and there is part of a tractor in the background which I didn't see until I pulled my photo up on the screen at home!

When I look for good images, I seek out interesting lines, patterns, colours and subjects.

Enjoy!
