Winter Trees


One morning, I was trying some sun photography.
But what I had in mind was just not happening.

Instead, a happy accident occurred.

Although I shot in vibrant color mode, these shots came out more black & white.

I assure you it was morning and the above image is the sun.
I think there's something to be said for ignoring rules and meters and what is "technically" correct.

  1. A girl after my own heart... I love ignoring the rules and seeing what will happen...I did that a lot in film.. and in old film processing..It is good to know the rules it ... but it is art to break them.

    My avatar on my blog was a "happy accident" (love that too!) and to date is still my favorite photo since I got serious about photography.
