Dam Sunday

Monochrome Monday
Monochrome Winter
Delta Lake Dam

I have been determined to find the sun… LOL

At first, I thought it was hiding now I think maybe something happened to it. I hear there is a chance it will make an appearance today, we’ll see.

The lack of sunshine didn’t stop me any more than the falling snow yesterday. I went out before dinner in search of a snowy sunset… ha ha ha

OK, I was really interested in seeing how the dam at Delta Lake looked in the snow. I was searching for an image to use on #MonochromeMonday and the textures at the dam would provide me more than a few opportunities. I circled the area around the dam and came home with a few good views. The bonus would be I managed to stay on my feet even though the snow and icy mist tried like hell to put me on my butt.

Monochrome Winter
Bellamy Harbor Park

It feels like forever but in reality it has only been two weeks. I suppose when you generally capture an image every day, the long, silent stretches can feel like an eternity. I wish I had a better reason for the silence other than “I wasn’t feeling it.” But, that is what it amounts to. There were opportunities but I chose not to engage. Maybe I needed it, maybe it is the excuse I keep in my head…

Burden

Monochrome Winter
Midday, Macro

Although the morning was full of snow the afternoon was bright and sunny. I took the opportunity to walk around the building during lunch to explore the winter landscape. With the wind blowing the snow off the roof and the plow still working on clearing the parking lot my exploring was cut a little short. I did manage to capture a few snow covered survivors…

I’ll admit I have a “thing” for photographing leafless trees in silhouette. There is a fascination with the amount of detail seen in the bare branches. These three trees at Delta Lake have been my subject numerous times throughout the years. I especially like when I have converted the image to black and white, which to me, greatly enhances the appeal of the silhouette. Plus, it works well for my Monochrome Winter series.
