Looking at these two shots, I could have used them for the upcoming theme on Camera Shy Self Portraits, what with my shadow making cameo appearances.
These two shots are from a morning last week, on the northeast quadrant of the campus at Carleton University. This hill dominates this section of the property, blocking the view of Dow's Lake beyond it.
I liked the morning light against the textures of the snowdrifts.
You really captured the texture of the snow.ReplyDelete
You really delivered in this bracing postReplyDelete
ALOHA from Honolulu
Who would think you were in the city? It looks as if you were in the Northwest Territories.ReplyDelete
You still have snow!! when does it melt? your right show does show some nice textures in the morning light.ReplyDelete
It is seen that the cold will not have missed this winter. Ha ha ha!ReplyDelete
I see you still have a lot of snow, William !ReplyDelete
I just spent a few weeks over in the snow. It made me appreciate the mild winter we had in Germany even more! Love your "selfie". :)ReplyDelete
here's hoping that this week some of it may melt?ReplyDelete
Gorgeous shots William!ReplyDelete
You have a lot of snow there!ReplyDelete
The snow is looks like it has an icy crust. I was out yesterday in the "warm" weather and could see that an icy crust was beginning to form here too. It's pretty...but slippery. :)ReplyDelete
Looks dangerous my friend!ReplyDelete
Dangerously beautiful ! Is there any sign of the coming spring yet William?ReplyDelete
@Linda: if I took that shot around four in the afternoon, the details in the snow wouldn't turn up. The sun being behind me makes all the difference.ReplyDelete
@Linda: if I look to my left, right, or behind me, the city becomes obvious.
@Bill: it'll probably be April before we really see spring here.
@Tomas: it has been consistently cold this year.
@Karl: we got a fair bit this winter.
@Halcyon: and when I took the shots, I didn't want the shadow!
@Gill: Apparently the temperatures are going up a bit.
@Marianne: we tend to get a healthy amount over the winter.
@EG: yes, a lot of it does compress over the course of the winter and become hard and icy.
@Luis: I wouldn't try walking up that hill!
@Grace: not quite yet, but it'll come.
Great shots, William, it's been a long time since I saw so many snow overhere.ReplyDelete
your shadow is a photo bomber. :)ReplyDelete
You've still got serious winter in Ottawa. I've been lazy about enlarging people's photos but I've started lately and you get far more out of a photo.ReplyDelete
This ice-covered snow looks treacherous.ReplyDelete
I too enlarge peoples pictures as I look too.ReplyDelete
Great takes beautiful!.. Nice selfy shadows. Can you not use it still for the shy shadow selfy coming up?
I think you are on to something with this self portrait!ReplyDelete
Totally beautiful. Love the light!ReplyDelete
@Jan: it's a regular thing for us, though winter was late in really getting started.ReplyDelete
@Tex: bad shadow! Bad!
@Red: including the footprints of someone who did cross that snow!
@Birdman: it would be awkward to walk in.
@Carolann: I have a couple of other ideas. One I'll have to photograph while it's still cold.
@MB: it was pleasant but cold that morning.
I have so many pictures with my shadow in them. It looks like there will be some major melting going on very soon.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful view! Love the clean white snow and clear blue sky. Wonderful photos!ReplyDelete
I agree these shots are great for Camera Shy Self Portraits theme :-)
I am fascinated by this a d also a bit scared...ReplyDelete
Good winter day shots!ReplyDelete
If you could only hear me sigh with contentment! :-)ReplyDelete
Cool cocktail : snow + sun !ReplyDelete
A beautiful bright sky!ReplyDelete
I like the snow drifts and textures from the wind. Something I notice here as well.ReplyDelete
Very cool, love this. :)ReplyDelete
love the second shot with just a touch of shadow - I usually try to crop out my shadow from shots but sometimes it is not possible and sometimes it does actually enhance the shotReplyDelete
@Judy: it depends on how high up the temps go, and how long. Four or five degrees above freezing for a couple of days won't do too much.ReplyDelete
@Tamago: I'll come up with another idea!
@VP: snow really appeals to me! I'll miss it when spring comes.
@Ciel: a pleasure to show.
@Anna: of course this kind of sky usually means it's very cold.
@Pamela: my eye gets drawn to that sort of thing.
@Linda: thank you.
@Gerald: in this case it adds something to the shots.
looks like you still have a lot of snow. My winters in Canada of February was slush of dirty snow by the road side,ReplyDelete
very cool. i love the shadow. have you seen any sign of spring in your neck of the woods? ( :ReplyDelete
As I said, great minds think alike. I particularly like the top one with all that lovely texture in the snowReplyDelete
I'd never have guessed this was in the heart of a city! And it looks as if you're really in your element for now.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping this is the only place I'll be seeing snow for a very long time!ReplyDelete
You are so welcome to all of that snow!ReplyDelete
very pretty and you have next month's theme going on there too!ReplyDelete
@Ann: here the winter is consistently cold. Down in southern Ontario can be a different story.ReplyDelete
@Beth: not yet, but we'll see later this week.
@Kay: it's weather I love.
@Norma: so a late March blizzard would be out of order?
@Mari: I love the snow!
I like the shot with the tree.ReplyDelete
beautiful blue sky :)ReplyDelete
This hill begs for a sled ride.ReplyDelete
I also like the morning light however it is so hard to get out of bed in time (smile).ReplyDelete
Beautiful snow! Haven't had ANY this year. Well, I suppose that's as close as we're going to get to a selfie by William.ReplyDelete
Ours is melting, melting, melting.ReplyDelete
What fun! I love playing with photography! Inspiriing!ReplyDelete
Beautiful snow !ReplyDelete
@Randy: I did too.ReplyDelete
@Jen: and those tend to be the coldest days.
@ODP: I'm not sure how safe that would be- I believe there are rocks beneath the snow.
@Denton: I do get out and about early enough. When I took these shots I was living much closer to campus.
@Whisk: ours is stilla round.
@Jennifer: thank you!
@Orvokki: I agree.
