Old Trees New Trees on a Winter Path

After school I drove into Highland Park, right near my home.  I’d taken a series of black and white photos for a film class years ago in this same spot and still have a print on my wall.

With the new snow today, I thought it might look interesting but the light was low and the sky thick and gray.

Found some new trees planted along the path, though.

I plan to return in the Spring.

There weren’t many dog walkers or walkers or runners or any activity in the park. The Super Playground deserted and covered with snow and ice.  No bicycles. The fountain turned off.  The reservoir a layer of ice.  The sounds muffled with the snow, but barely a car driving around the circle today.

It’s in color but almost looks black and white.

Highland Park Trees in Snow

  1. My favorite winter scene is the silhouette of the bare trees against a winter sky!

    I don’t like the cold but the snow on those trees looks beautiful.

  3. WInter is a season of contrasts, the white and black of this photo are proof. There’s beauty to be found in those contrasts and again your photo is proof. :)

  7. It *does* almost look B/W; the hint of brown leaves adds just enough color to make a person wonder…
