My daily blog soon turned into a weekly blog and now it seems that monthly has become the norm...that is going to end right now..going to try to write and post images every week. This winter has been very difficult; one of the hardest we've had here in the Northeast. These images were taken a week or so ago after another heavy snow. The lower image of the brook was taken with the Singh-ray blue/gold polarizer..the result is something that appeals to me; I have had some really ugly images with the filter: you have to know when it works by practicing a lot. Sometimes the result is just too over the top with the gold..the blue can be beautiful, if used subtly in the winter.
