It was not ideal photography weather…no sun, therefore no interesting shadows, snowing, and quite gray.  However, it was above 30 degrees Fahrenheit (unusual this winter) and there was a fresh blanket of snow-4 inches!  I figured I’d adjust the contrast, or lack thereof, back home in Photoshop and see if there was anything interesting out at Knoch Knolls woods.

The snow muffled the noise of traffic and it was very peaceful.

There were lots of gorgeous oak trees.  I just love the way their gnarly branches twist and turn, accented by the snow.

The snow bank’s simplicity stood in stark contrast to the complicated reflections in the water…

When I ran across some colorful leaves, they really stood out.

The frenetic movements of the squirrel attracted our attention from the peaceful stillness of the woods.  He was very curious and spent quite a bit of time checking us out, all while circling the trunk, appearing and disappearing.

Turns out there was plenty of contrast after all, I just had to get out there and see it…enjoy!
