The title says it all. Unfortunately more snow, but even though I’m finding winter tiresome there is something quite magical about recently fallen snow. It washes out all the colors and makes the scenes essentially monochromatic. I love black and white imagery and with these winter scenes it’s almost unnecessary to convert them to black and white. In this case I also liked the curves implied by the arrangement of the benches.

In many ways I prefer the second image below with it’s two curves: the benches and the border of the now iced over and snow covered pond. Unfortunately it’s too tightly cropped at the top. I would have preferred to have had more room above the benches. I suspect that the only way to get this would have been to have gotten higher (to hide the distracting background when I wanted only snow) and unfortunately there was nothing convenient for me to stand on.
