Winter/Non-Winter Details. January 10, 2012

With no snow here to speak of in the official “winter season,” the details I’ve been inclined to photograph haven’t been at all typical of this time of year; they’re just details.

So, here goes.

A black and white photo of schist and shadows:

A color photo of a rock face in the same area, displaying a range of subtle hues:

…and a small grotto decorated with icicles:

I’ve nearly given up on the idea of shooting winter landscapes this year, but not quite – this is, after all, New England, where things meteorological tend to change like the weather.

…of bluetts along the Deerfield, after a rain, the light low, the fog rising, bands of feldspar standing out in lightning relief against the rounded rumps of Mother Earth’s schist:

I’ve taken some of the color out of it, the form and contrast saying more to me than the ordinary greens of its grasses and shrubs.

This is a gift from Elliot; I hope you like it.

It’s gray and raining here today, and not the weather I want to be prepping my garden in, so I’m (predictably) off to scour the hills and vales for interesting views and wild edibles.

But before I hit the road, here’s a shot of the Cold River from earlier in the week:

I liked the way the pink Cheshire Quartzite contrasted with the gray of the local schist, and spent quite a while at this spot, watching the changing light and snapping away.

With any luck I’ll post some wild edible pics later today.
