Madison Indiana Photography

“First Snow”

We got our first measurable snow of the year the other day, not much about 2 inches, but just enough to cover up a otherwise lifeless and uninteresting landscape and give it a little pop.

This is one of the many waterfalls that dot the landscape of the area I live in, and I thought a perfect match for a B&W conversion, hope you enjoy taking a look as much as I did in capturing this image.

  2. This is such a wonderful shot and I really bet this water will be running once your snow melts!

  7. First snow – Wow! The waterfall is perfect. b/w is a great choice here- wish I knew when it was a great choice on my own shots. 🙂

  8. Snow? What is this snow you speak of? True enough, it got down to about 63 degrees yesterday morning and your youngest niece wanted to wear her mittens to school. Yes, her mother let her. See you soon and get please get rid of that white stuff before we leave our island.

  11. Well, it does look chilly — or else it’s the power of suggestion from your title.

  13. How you doing JT, this one is actually from the cut on top of highway 421, that little falls on the right going up the hill.

    I will see you Saturday afternoon 🙂

  14. Very nice. You have some great waterways in your area. And you know how to take advantage of them. This photo helps me to understand better why B and W photos are cool. I’m not sure I can explain it but I get it.

  15. The black and white works well! If you want a few more inches of snow, I could send you the 11 inches we received last night – that’s on top of the 23 inches we already had. Enough already!

  17. Great shot Bernie, I think the small amount of snow actually adds interest to the Black and White photo. Very nicely done. A subtle use of tones.

  19. Hey Bernie, I realized that I had not explored your b/w photos before. This one takes my breath away! I love the action going on in both the foreground and background–lots to see. Beautiful work.
