Ice, Snow and Fog: Black and White Photographs of an Odd Winter Morning in Bucks County, Pennsylvania

This past Saturday morning (January 11th, 2014), I was out of the house well before the sun came up.  It was an unusual morning, with drizzle and fog.  The temperature was in the 40's, which seemed balmy compared to four or five days earlier, when I my first dog walk of the day was in a bitter cold 5 degrees.  The extreme cold stretch had caused portions of the Delaware River (between New Jersey and Pennsylvania) to freeze.  As the weather had warmed for a few days, chunks of ice were drifting down the river.  I took all of the following photographs on Saturday morning, between about 7:15 am and 9:30 am.  The fog and drizzle combined with the remaining snow and ice to create a beautiful, almost surreal landscape.

I took all of these images with my Canon EOS 7D digital SLR camera.  After minor edits in iPhoto or Photoshop, I converted them to black and white using OnOne Perfect Photo Suite.  To see more of my work or to purchase a print, visit my ETSY store HERE.

  1. These are beautiful photos. I belong to a camera club, but not as active as I once was. I've never gotten in to black and white.

    1. Thanks for looking at my blog & photographs. For these subjects, I thought black & white seemed to work well. I find OnOne Perfect Photo Suite helpful in converting the images to black & white. According to the forecast, you'll get some chances to take some nice snow photographs in the next day or two.
