Such stillness … and a bit of mystery, too.

Yes, that’s what I was going for in doing this in monochrome. Not exactly the moors of “The Hound of the Baskervilles” but still a bit ghostly.
Not bad at all for “…days have not been very favorable for capturing light when combined with dirty melting snow and bare everything.” This is a bleeping fantastic photograph, that’s what it is.

100% agreement. Well done Steve!
Double thanks, Liz. 🙂
It looks a lot better in black and white. I don’t think I slaughtered as many pixels as you often do, but they did whimper a bit. 🙂 Thanks for that ringing endorsement.
I think in the end, the pixels end up really happy. I’m sure yours did.
This is a real meditation. I can clearly hear the silence.
It was symphony of silence. Thanks, Gary.
I just went back to it again–it’s even better the second time around!
Kind of like a stew that sat overnight? Thanks again, Gary.
Actually, more like a fine wine that needed more time to breathe properly.
Stunning! I’m in awe.
Thanks so much, Liz.
Elegant, Stephen! Love the reflection and the composition.
Thank you, Ellen.
My first thought was that this reminds me of Maine. Then I thought that you’re not all that far from Maine.
Definitely New England. I have seen Maine this way also. Far is relative. I was just exchanging comments with someone who is in West Texas about a simple little 600 mile ride.
From Austin to El Paso is about 600 miles. The good thing about that trek is it’s mostly on Interstate 10, where the speed limit for much of way west of central Texas is 75 or 80 miles per hour with no congestion.
Who knows if I will ever pull off that trip but I do hope to. I now have four folks in Texas, one near S.F. plus my brother and up in WA. I’ll need at least a month for all of that.
I really like the feel of this one, how things fade into the distance. And that angled tree and its reflection is a nice addition.
Thanks, Todd. If approachable I might have tried to make that tree the subject. Maybe later this year in autumn when the ground there is as swampy.
Thank you, Sharon.
It’s a great one for wordless Wednesday, it exudes quiet.
Thanks, Robert. I don’t always post for Wordless Wednesday but do appreciate it allowing me to say nothing. This was very quiet although I was standing next to a small highway. Not much traffic there especially early in the morning.
Love the dark and mysterious water at the front and the mistiness in the background – lovely tonality! And such peace!
Thanks, Ann. I always stop in this spot to check and this was an answer to a dream. 🙂
I really like this, Steve. It has a stillness, a quiet peacefulness about it.
Thanks, Pete. That’s what it was like for most of the shoot. Occasionally a truck would come zooming by and I had to hug the tripod. 🙂
I love the mystery of this one, too. So beautiful and still…
A melancholy moment, at least in my perception. But also very majestic.
It does have a bit of that, doesn’t it. Not my intent in processing though. Thanks, Tanja.
It might just be a reflection of the melancholy mood all around!
That i can be. I posted the bright and cheerful Elf Cup with your melancholy in mind, Tanja. 🙂
I will have to check it out, Steve!
Great, atmospheric scene. I love the choice of B&W!
Thank you, Denise. The fog and low light made for some nice mood and monochrome seemed to suit it best.
Ah, so lovely, Steve, so lovely! The handling of the light here is amazing.
Thanks, Lynn. There wasn’t much of it. Glad that you find it appealing. 🙂
Stunning. The grayscale adds a lot to my surprise.
Love, light and glitter
Thanks, Ellen. There wasn’t much in the way of color so it seemed a natural B&W even without conversion.
