The falling out

The figures have been reduced to minimalist proportions but the silhouette of the figure on the extreme left suggests there has probably been some altercation!  The contrasting moods are interesting.

Keeping it simple

As in the previous post, the focus here is on pattern  –  pattern expressed simply.

Less is more

Among the many pictures I have created over the winter months, this image ranks high on my list of favourites.  It is simple in composition, uncluttered in content and exudes an atmosphere of quietude I value.

Snow sketches

I mentioned two days ago that I get considerable pleasure from exploring the patterns created by grasses and seedheads set against a white, snow ‘canvas’.  I appreciate that not everyone shares my enthusiasm  –  I have seen the raised eyebrows!!  However, I am offering a selection below ranging from the simple ‘hieroglyph’ to more complex patterns.

Seaweed Doodles

The beach at low tide is a treasure trove for the photographer.  Along the high tide line, fragments of seaweed form natural, abstract patterns.  This is nature ‘doodling’!

In the images below nothing has been added and nothing taken away, other than the sand!  Removing the texture of the sand gives clarity to the design.  A little colour saturation has sometimes been used for artistic purposes.

Winter Grasses in black and white

The bleached appearance of winter grasses provides limited colour interest but, at the same time, seems to emphasise shapes and patterns  –  features that make them a source attractive to black and white photographers.
