Monochrome Monday--Haphazard Winter Shot


This is the place where I fell down during that crazy day I wrote about in Snow Photography: A Farce. I wasn't going to share these monochromes, but I got some requests, so here's the most appropriate one. I don't mind if you laugh at me. Note the footprints--those are the ones I made once I finally got myself back up. This is what happened when I set the tripod down and pointed it in the general direction of some trees (I was too cold and irritated to spend much time fiddling with the framing). Also, you can see that I was standing on a slope, though I thought I was on level ground. Snow can be tricky that way!

There is nothing wrong with that shot, however it came to be taken. Blown up large, it is terrific.
Everyone falls down and snow is softer than rock - to which I will attest.

Thanks, Aileni! I'll agree, it didn't hurt at all, but it was certainly embarrassing!

Way impressive. Your klutz shots are better than any shot I'd take.

That is a beautiful shot.

I am glad you didn't get hurt.

We finally got some snow today but it is ony a covering of snow really. Your snow looks so deep and makes great Momonchrome shots.

Well, I don't think I would be trekking out into the snow like that. I still don't own a pair of snow boots. But, It sounds like fun to me! I'll have to get a pair of boots and join the kids when they are playing outside. I do like your shot and the story behind it.

Well, Marigold... I wasn't wearing boots, either. Probably the cause of my series of mishaps...
