Shadows on snow make a perfect monochrome. I really like the delicacy of those seedheads.

Lene said...

Great B&W :) I guess you almost didn`t have to chance the colors - natural monocrome garden :) I love shadows - they meen it has to be light :)

Have a nice week :)

Today is the day for stunning, bright
snow shots - the contrasts are really
riveting.

I love to see shadows in the snow, you have captured these well.

Now that is a beautiful shot! Have a wonderful weekend.

Babooshka said...

That shadows appear as lace. It's another beauty.

Rambling Round said...

I have a cat that would just love to play with these shadows!

Beautiful B/W photo. It almost looks like a reflection.

Such lovely delicate shadows. What a pretty shot.

vincibene said...

Wonderful picture with light and intersting shadows!

Thanks for your comment, but I thought not creative, I had only in the right moment the camera, I came from a walk and saw this funny snow carpet.

The snow makes a very pretty back ground,
The sun light making the shadows gives a lovely calming effect.

Rose said...

Such simplicity! It makes a great photo...B&W or otherwise I bet.

Ferreira-Pinto said...

I think this one is quite unique and that you didnĂ˝ need to do many chances on the original photo to show the beauty of those shadows on snow.

mononeil said...

Interesting use of the shadows. Well done.

Catherine said...

That's the way I appreciate snow, pure when no one has yet trodden on it, intact. I let you imagine how it becomes in Paris.

These shadows are so fine.

Excellent!

BJ Roan said...

The shadows are perfect. It's amazing what you can do with a simple clump of dried out vegetation.

Jill said...

A dormant garden can still be beautiful!

Shammickite said...

Love those snowy shadows. And if there are shadows, that means there is SUNSHINE!!! YAY!!!

Mojo said...

The word that comes to mind is "quiet". I guess it's the nature of snow to absorb sound or something, but it always seem to be almost deathly quiet after a snowstorm. And if a photo can capture that, this one would be the one.

see you there! said...

Peaceful, pretty, makes me think I could almost like snow. Not quite, but almost.

Carver said...

That's a beautiful shot. I love the shadows on the snow in black and white.

judi said...

Our snow never lasts long... I'm not complainin' I am just enjoying yours!

Tricia said...

I'm Baaack--sorta. Server problem, no virus or bad stuff.

Love the shadows but best of all I want that Dragon. MB

Linnea W said...

I love shadow shots! Perfect for MM. It's been raining here for the past few days - so no shadows!

Liz said...

That's so artistic!

I love your previous pink and gold too.

cieldequimper said...

Almost like a romantic painting!

John said...

Great capture. Love the light and the contrast in the image.

George said...

What a beautiful monochrome shot. I love the shadows against the snow.

Manz said...

So many of your readers have said this already... but it's true... the snow is a perfect surface to show off a great shadow!

Bright white = nice shadow.

Great photo.

Blognote said...

Very beautiful monochrome photo!!

michael bird said...

Lovely and superb. Does not remind me of the cold at all, which I appreciate.

Love the shadows in the snow. I also like those clumps of snow in the bush.
