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.




Wow, it’s been raining pretty much non-stop for the last couple of days. When all is said and done we’re supposed to have anywhere from 5-8 inches of rain since Friday. As I was going to bed last night I saw this puddle in the front yard and the street lights glowing. Thought it made a nice scene.

Riding off into the sunset

I was hoping for a few clouds and a bit more colour but it’s one of the few days of the year when I can get this shot down the rails here in Troy. Hard to believe it is December 23rd and it was in the upper 60s today. Guess I have to enjoy it while I can.
