I like taking pictures in Winter because so much color falls away that you have to concentrate on line and movement and contrast and pattern. All of these pictures were taken around or near our place on the East Rosebud River, Montana. Some are literally monochrome images, others are in color, although the colors are not strong. In order, they are: ice over flowing water, burnt grass (from last summer’s fire) under snow, wire and weeds, partially-frozen waterfall, water bubbling up through a hole in the river ice, and wing-and-tail print from a magpie’s recent takeoff. All taken with Fuji X-Pro1, 35mm or 60mm lenses.
