Winter in Guelph Ontario, Black and White Photography
Winter Photography Guelph
I was awake early, and the snow sat thick in the branches of my backyard. The sheet of white blanketed the ground, grey clouds hung in the sky just sparse enough to let a little morning light in.
I don’t know what it was that motivated me to put my coat on, or my winter boots. To pour a steaming coffee into the thermos and get outside, but I did. It was 8am and I stood at the rivers edge in Guelph. I made the decision to shoot entirely in black and white this morning. This image by Ansel Adams inspired the choice, and this quote: “Paint the flying spirit of the bird rather than its feathers.” – Robert Henri which I found on David Duchemin’s blog lead me to where I know the geese are.
