Barbed Flakes

Squared – SQ81
Monochrome Winter

The first day of the new year was very unclear of itself. There was snow. There was wind. The sun showed its face. And there were a few moments of calm.

During one of those calm moments I ventured outside with the macro lens. It has a very long lens hood which would protect the front of the lens from the elements. I also wanted to see what I could capture of the new snow. I ended up behind the house pointing the camera at the fence since it was the only thing not swaying in the wind.

Frequent readers of my ramblings will know my penchant for the barbed wire fence around my yard. It didn’t disappoint me yesterday. The snow gathered on the barbs and if you look closely you can make out the individual flakes. As I often do, my winter images end up as B&W. I like the clarity it brings to the image.

This is another entry in my growing Squared series as well as the first installment this year for my old Monochrome Winter series.  The MW series did not receive any love from me last year and I hope to correct that going forward.
