Leaf in B&W

We got some snow overnight so Monday morning I got out to do some shooting. Winter is truly here in the St. Louis region with the temps only in the single digits. I saw this leaf lying in the pristine snow and had to take a photo. Decided I wanted to convert it to black and white.




As we were taking down the ornaments this bulb fell and broke. A fitting end to the year that had lots of ups and downs. As it is now 2018 I suspect it will be more of the same.
