Frosted light

If you wish for the light, be ready to receive it. — Rumi

Spring is on its way —

But only last week, the bright sun

And the feathered hoar frost

Turned the world into a black and white wonderland.

The sky may be bleached of colour,

But that frosted light is glorious!

  18. There is an American Photographer, Ansel Adams, who is famous for his Black & White Photography. I love Black & Whites – they convey a certain emotion that is different than color. I imagine you took these shots in color, but the frost and colors washed out to full grey tones of black and white, so the effect is the same. Your photos are frame worthy! Thank you for sharing your talent.

    PS What do you think about people “pinning” your Photos on Pinterest???? Is that a good or a bad thing in your opinion?

    Like

    March 17, 2012 at 01:28

    • That’s a tricky one about Pinterest. I love spreading the love, but the problem is that when you sign the terms and conditions with Pinterest, you promise that you have PERMISSION from the photographer to re-pin her photos (which clearly people don’t have). And once you’ve re-pinned a photo you say you have permission for, then according to the agreement you signed with Pinterest, they can then use that photo and sell it to others. If the person who took the photo finds out and decides to go to court, then you are responsible for all the costs.

      So – I like the thought behind Pinterest, but not the commercial aspect they have of saying they own anything pinned there.
