Gnarl of Winter
This photograph series is follow-up (or extension rather) of my post on Wednesday—the gloomy late evening photograph from the Red River levee. Usually this time of the year I slack off on the shutter snapping as the days leave a bit to be desired. The days are overcast, cold (more of an annoying cold), but never cold enough to snow. The landscapes are bare with gnarled trees and brown thatches of underbrush. And always damp and soggy grounds. But I still like to go out and this year made more of an effort with the camera. This “dead Louisianan winter” series came from that stroll down the levee.
Most of these were purposely shot a bit underexposed, wanting to capture a more silhouette style on the branches & bramble but retain the deep haze of the evening overcast.
But nature will always have a splash of color for you. These berries on some brush were in such contrast it reminded me of selective coloring photographs. And then last photograph, the early buds of spring. Enjoy!
