THERE’S A CERTAIN TIMELESS beauty in black-and-white images.
Monochrome equals zero distractions.
Lack of color encourages study of light and shadows and patterns.
The absence of hues calms the spirit in a way that’s almost poetic, meditative, spiritual.
I’ve learned that not every image deserves color, especially in a landscape mostly devoid of color like that of a Minnesota winter.
In it’s unedited state, this photo was blown-out. I almost discarded it. But then I waved the magic wand of photo editing. The muses wrote shadows across the snow like lovely lines of lyrical poetry.
