Winter Monochromes

Without light there is no colour.  It is not that that we just don't see colour; there isn't any.  This is because the colour we see is a reflection of a portion of the light spectrum.  Green grass reflects the green portion of the spectrum while absorbing the rest of the colours.
This doesn't mean however, that when there is light there are a lot of colours, as seen here in these winter shots.  They are not black and white with tones, but full colour.  The low, early morning light with two primary tonal values, light and dark, help create the monochrome effect.

A New Year. Already.

After recently been made aware that a visitor could only leave a comment if they were a member of google, I have changed the settings so that anyone can leave a comment, so please do.

I have decided not to include the location of the photos as most viewers will not be familiar with the area. Most shots however were taken in the Muskoka area of Ontario Canada.  If you would like to know the exact road, or name of waterfall please ask.
