Winters Isolation

There seems to be no direction to the light that blankets the bare branches of these trees. It is this lack of directional light that helps in promoting a feeling of isolation and loneliness. Black trunks contrast the stark flat background, and also contributes to the intense emotional feeling. Light or the lack of light is often overlooked as a necessary element in a solid composition. In fact it may be the most important part.

Winters subtle light

For a few minutes the sun seeps through the cold blanket of fresh snow contrasting the cold blue landscape and transforms bitter to welcoming. Winter is surprising and full of subtle detail not present in other seasons. Its low and diffuse light is full of delicate aspects that enable the photographer to capture and create extraordinary perspective.
