Size Small


My world is bathed, enveloped, encased in snow.
This time of year, I especially appreciate walking from my front door to the woods -
no warming up the car for a photo venture.


While out shooting, I try all the different views on for size.....
the large full view, the medium sized one, and the small close-up version.
Somehow, the small size always seems to fit just right.



I like the intimacy, the detail, 
the feeling of walking into a world that others may just pass by unnoticed.



When you're out shooting what size view fits you?
Wishing you a happy and creative week.

  3. One word: DELICIOUS! Each and every photo from this series speaks to me. You capture everything I love: the curves, the light, the shade, the meandering and adorable details, which I too like to capture when I can. I am also pleased to see my favourite stick people meeting up for a chat in photo number four! I love the rainbow effect on the snow crystals in that last shot.
    Beautiful photography, capturing the beauty in our world.

  4. Snow is your forte:
    these scenes are all perfect.
    The light is the main ingredient and I always prefer light to colour. Especially when so well applied.

  8. How wonderful these are Anna. Your winter scenes are always so beautiful. I love the simplicity of them, and the colors in the last one here are amazing. You definitely caught the light at the perfect time.

    Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a fantastic day!

    P.S. We finally have some snow!! About 3 inches last night. Unfortunately I am working today, so all I got to do was shovel it!! :-)

  12. Oh, my! Your last photo took my breath away! It's really awesome! Winter at its best, with the sparking snow! I really love all your photos, Anna! The stillness, the silence and the peace they convey. And how wonderfully you have captured the warm low light light! :)

  25. What a wonderful question. I'll have to think on that. It may depend on my mood.
    You captured some things I definitely would have mised. The last shot-the light is spectacular. My other fave is the 2nd shot in B and W. Two moods I think.

  31. I play around as well, take a lot of different angles and views, color, b&w... etc. And sometimes only end up with one that I like. The first and last here are my favorites.

  32. So many colors in the snow that often go unnoticed.
