Clash of Seasons
October 24, 2017 • Leave a Comment
So last week while walking the dog through the neighborhood, a few fallen aspen leaves lying in what was left of the snow caught my eye. With another snow storm forecasted, I new I wanted to try to photograph this "clash of seasons" so when it recently snowed again, I went out to the backyard to see what I could come up with photographically. Finding leaves wasn't hard as the wind had blown most of the leaves off the trees, but the snow was melting fast. It was grey and overcast and the dull flat light wasn't what I wanted, so I went inside and grabbed a flashlight to try to illuminate the scene and see how I liked the results. These two are a couple of my favorites. The droplets on the leaves were frozen, little droplets of ice. In the above image, I placed the flashlight flat on the snow and side lit the droplets while in the image below I held the flashlight near my camera. I liked how these turned out and they filled the inspiration I had that morning while walking the dog.
