Woah~ That's some unique sights of snowdrops.
For a second I thought they were rice :P

stan said...

James Higham said...

Did you take it?

Nevin said...

I am wondering the same thing as stan and James above? How did you do it?

Carver said...

Those are wild looking snowdrops.

Thanks everyone. I did take it. Unless otherwise stated All WW and PH photos are my own


The shot was a conventional, if contrasty, monochrome photo. I simply upped the contrast and brightness, adjusted the light balances and painted out a few residual bits of foliage

So that's how snow drops looks like. They are almost the same as cotton balls :)

Great work!

Sara Bonds said...

Really? It looks like a painting. It is lovely.

You and I posted at the same time and you've already got oodles of comments!
I find this black and white shot to be really fascinating! The white drops remind me of Pussy Willows!

Great effect, I love the way it turned out!

Hope the leg unstiffens a bit soon and recovery goes smoothly.

this is wonderful!!! a quite unconventional shot of snow (well, at least for me) but still maintained that downy look we always associate with winter flakes!

Looks like abstract art to me :-)

Amanda Guthrie said...

I got so caught up in the Jesus in the Kit Kat I almost forgot WW but I meandered on over and what do I see snow drops? Well Jams if you say so!

That was the effect I was after Cherie!

Ah they are snowdrops. Double snowdrops taken from an odd angle!
