Winter Snowscapes

Well,let's have some more fun with photo edits.
Today's pictures were all taken early in February of this year.


This old wagon has shown up on this blog before,but I think it is worth revisiting.As any photographer will know,a scene looks different under the varying skies.
This first picture is as I saw it that day,a clear blue sky and nice light on the wagon.


This is the same picture,only I turned it into a black and white.This puts all the emphasis on the wagon.


Still the same picture,but this time I added a slight sepia tone and a vignette.
Do you have a favourite and if so,why.
Once again,I can't pick a favourite,I like them all.


On the same Sunday afternoon that I got the previous pictures,I was able to capture some snow drifts in the roadside ditches.


This one shows an old homestead in the background.I remember the folks who lived there and I'm sure they would have been able to tell us many interesting stories.


Closing Thought:
 All the earth worships you
and sings praises to you;
they sing praises to your name
(Psalms 66:4 ESV)

  1. I like the 3rd one best, the vigenette photo. i like the way the light points out the wagon.. beautiful snow drifts and i like the way the snow looks like a ribbon in the second one

  3. Ruth, I like all three of them too! I'm a bit partial to the sepia one! It definitely has that old time look!

  4. there is something about wagon wheels that just takes me back. love it! we had a 90 yr old bday party this past weekend, just getting back into the swing of things. it was a real blessing to be at the party, can you imagine over 250 people singing happy birthday to a real special lady. it was emotional. lots of happy tears. she is one in a million. lots to chance up on. hope you had blessed weekend. my mom was raised Baptist so i must admit it was fun to see their church again but it has changed so much since we were last there, i was raised Methodist. Baptist preachers are so long winded. not that, that is bad just different for me. i was a bit lost during church, my mom would agree, but it was a fun conversation starter. i enjoyed your photo playing. keep it up!! have a great week! take care.

  5. I love the sepia one, Ruth. Your snow photography is so crisp - hard to do with white on white!

  6. I am finding it difficult to choose a favourite as they all look great but maybe the sepia photo gives a suitably vintage feel to the old wagon that sits well.
    Lovely images!

  11. George is correct... NOBODY can capture winter like you can!!!! Gorgeous post. Again --I love the B&W one of the wagon---but all three of them are excellent... Love the snow drifts... Amazing to me --who seldom sees LOTS of snow.
    Hugs,

  14. Well now! For me, I like the sepia one best. The wheels are clearer and there is more definition of the snow.

  15. I guess I'd go with the black and white, but that wagon looks great in all of them. I like the snowdrift in the picture with the homestead in the background. It looks so silky and undisturbed.

  20. Nicely edited Ruth, but I would say my favourite is the first one. There is something about blue sky and white snow that I find very beautiful.
