the seduction of snow

Folds of snow and shadows

Rolling snow and shadows

Snow mound and shadow lines

Waves of snow and shadow

Shadow play on snow

  1. I am seduced….but then I remembered the cold……the ice maiden is best beholden from afar. Very pretty, Scott .

    Wow! Scott, this is very seductive indeed. What gentle curves and interesting texture you’ve captured.
    Very clever shooting – you have a very creative photographer’s eye.

  5. Am I going to have to block this site? What if my children came across it?

    . . . oh, right . . . I ain’t got no kids. Carry on.

    • Ok…will carry on….

  6. These are stunning Scott. The texture is amazing and yes, sensual and seductive. The first image reminds me of folded cloth. The balance of light and shadow is excellent and not easy to get right and as Victoria said, it takes a very creative photographic eye to come up with images like this. πŸ™‚

    • It would be very tasty, way up there in the mountains…. Thank you, Roswitha. πŸ™‚

      January 23, 2013 at 9:25 pm

  11. Such beauty found in your cold domain. You make it look almost enticing…. or seductive. Not an easy thing to do except with your artistic eye.

    January 21, 2013 at 8:03 pm

    • Yes, my beautiful, cold domain, Gunta…such a wonderful place to me. Thank you for your nice words. πŸ™‚

  12. James O.

    At least from my humble opinion you’ve stepped up your photography to a new level with this series.

    January 21, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    • I’ve always appreciated your perspective and feedback, James…thank you for this, too…sincerely.

      January 23, 2013 at 9:35 pm

  13. Diamond Dust. Love them, Scott

    January 22, 2013 at 1:57 am

    • Some of the flakes were almost an inch across, Andy…almost mind boggling…and thank you.

      January 23, 2013 at 9:37 pm

  14. What a wonderfully artistic interpretation! I shall look at snow with a different eye from now on!

    January 22, 2013 at 3:19 am

    • Thank you very much, Meanderer…and how nice that you will look at it differently now. πŸ˜‰

      January 23, 2013 at 9:38 pm

  15. It really does look like a blanket.

    January 22, 2013 at 4:23 am

    • Yes, it does, Allen…especially that first shot.

      January 23, 2013 at 9:39 pm

  16. Lois Farley Shuford

    Amazing shots, Scott. Makes me think of Rodin…

    January 23, 2013 at 6:03 pm

    • Thank you, Lois…and Rodin does have some beautiful forms…very rich…sensual contours….

      January 23, 2013 at 9:42 pm

  17. Seductive indeed! I’ve never seen snow like that. The 4th one is crazy!

    January 30, 2013 at 1:41 pm

    • Yeah, it got me…got my mind to thinking, too…. It was crazy beautiful up there, Lynn, hoar-frost plates over an inch high almost sounded like tinkling wind chimes when I brushed my hand over them….

      January 30, 2013 at 9:21 pm

Thank you for would be great to hear from you....
