winter sunshine.


350/365 – soft winter light

…I know we need to take it however it comes. and I was struck today by just how soft it really is. today was the day that promised sunshine. and after a weekend full of rain (and knitting) I was desperate for a long walk. I worked from home and started dark early, so I could take a walk in the afternoon – in the peak of winter sunshine.

and once I was out, I realized that the sun at 2:45 pm was barely strong enough to make a shadow. and that the bare tree branches might make an awesome black and white photo.

turns out I didn’t need to adjust much to convert the photo to black and white. and I really love the lines that those bare branches paint across the pale sky.
