The First Snow On Brookside by paul2782

The First Snow On Brookside

Night falls on the first snow on Brookside Lights are on in the distant houses not a soul nor a street lamp to be seen, after a day of travelers distress calm is restored ............... but I will sing you no lullaby, not tonight not any night for you are long since gone to a place where you watch our every move
Really like this, love how the shade is eating into houses. Amazing light.

This is beautiful with the last rays of the sun highlighting the cottages on the left. Lovely :)

Beautiful calm scene!!
January 27th, 2013  
Ahh, I adore this scene. It is a fave for me. You might tag it for the light and shade theme. :)
January 27th, 2013  
Love the detail! The way the snow dropps down from the sides, the mailbox, and more. It is a beautiful photo that gives lots for the eye to play with!
January 27th, 2013  
Beautiful! Love this in b&w!
January 27th, 2013  
This works so well with the frozen brook, (or stream, tributary, creek or crick "that's how we say creek in South Jersey" etc.) and the shadows.
January 27th, 2013  
Beautiful, looks so nice and calm.
January 27th, 2013  
a wonderful capture for a black & white
January 27th, 2013  
What a lovely scene. I love the jagged edges of the snow along the stream's edge.
January 27th, 2013  
Great lines and shadows! Very nice b&w!
January 27th, 2013  
I love that you used Black and White. It creates a moody feeling.
January 27th, 2013  
I love the composition and the small patch of bright light on the left. The telephone pole and wires are also a great element of the scene. Fav
January 27th, 2013  
The best one I've seen from you yet. Grayscale conversion that should be used as an example in tutorials and books! Great composition as well!
January 27th, 2013  
This is a fave - I love everything about it.
January 27th, 2013  
I like the way how the electrical tower and the geometry of its cables is implemented into the composition. And there is a beautiful light on it too.
