November's Lines and Textures

On my walks yesterday all I was noticing was the shadow line of the trees. As we approach the solstice the shadows get longer, creating intricate pattern on the driveway and barely white pond. As I looked closely at the ice on the pond I was filled with wonder at the cosmos created. With such a minimal landscape  textures comes to the forefront. The land is black and white with shades of gray, etched with November's lines.

  2. What lovely variety of texture and line - hard to say which I like best. My fingers itch to work them in stitch, my preferred medium.

    1. Thanks Jack, actually these are colour photos which I almost changed into black and white, keep meaning to do that and see, or not see, the difference!
