Trees on White | #monomad Challenge

in Black And White2 months ago

A couple of days ago, I needed to escape from the gray fog and the rain in town for a while.

Trees on White

Trees on White

As you can imagine, this post is my entry for the #monomad challenge created by @brumest and hosted by @monochromes.
There was not much color in the photos anyway, so I wouldn't even have had to edit them in #monochrome.

A little walk in the snow was all I wanted, but I was also hoping that the raindrops would turn into snowflakes when I reach higher altitudes ... and my wish got fulfilled, because it was snowing on the little mountain I was driving up. Not much snowing though, but it was snowing, and that was all I wanted 😁

The fog, which was dark gray down in town, changed to a bit more white and together with the slight snowfall it painted a to me beautiful landscape. Of course, these are no Winter Wonderland photos as you might expect them to be in this time of the year, but more minimalist monochrome landscapes.

Gently Falling

Softly from the sky is falling
Snowflakes white as lilies fair;
Gently to each other calling
As they float down through the air.
Softly, softly, oh so softly!
Do they come from dizzy heights;
Gently, gently, oh, so gently!
Do they lay a blanket white.
Over all the many housetops,
Over shrubs and tall, tall trees,
Over hills and field and meadows,
Hiding stones and restless leaves.

That was all for today. I hope you like these images and you can imagine what a peaceful and silent time such a walk in the snow can be.
While I am writing these lines, it's snowing outside and if I can finish work a bit earlier tomorrow I know what I would like to do 😉

All photos were taken with the Canon EOS R and the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS II USM lens.

These are lovely minimalist photos, Hannes and a great poem to go with them.

The trees are so delicate looking like a pencil drawing by a snow fairy.🧚‍♂️

I hope your Christmas was wonderful dear Hannes.🤗

Last two days of the year! Make the best of them. 😊 May 2021 be a better year for us all! Cheers! 🥂😀

Haha, I'm working till next year - nightshift on December 31 🤣
But I don't mind - I'm not so much in parties anyway.

I believe it can only get better, or better said I don't think it could get worse than is was in 2020 - so 2021 will definitely be better for hopefully all of us 😀

Hi Johann,

Sorry to hear that you will be working on New Year's Eve! Must be an important job!.😊

Anyway, I am not into parties too. And New Year's Eve are mostly a non-event. It's just another day!.

Okay, we shall catch up again next year! 😀

Hi Vincent,

you don't need to be sorry, because I don't mind, I get extra paid and tomorrow is going to be a very easy day and night 😉
The job is just a security job which I do a few times a month, practically taking care of our company's property (watching the entrance and video monitors).

I'm sure to have the time for a short last 2020 post 😉

Wish you the best, Vincent, see you next year 😄


Cheers and !BEER

Hi Johann,

It makes sense. Since you are not partying the night away, and there's a job that is paying extra, why not take it right? Your colleagues will be thankful to you for taking their place, so they can go and party. It's a win, win situation and everyone's happy. 🥂😊

That's true my friend, December 24 and 31 we have usually free, so they always seek for colleagues who do want to work on those days 🙂

I'm on my way to work already and wish you a nice last day of 2020 - happy New Year Vincent 😀

Photography turned out great, looks more like sketches. Soft snow gives softer magical effect.

Happy New Year's Eve Johann to you and your family, keep having fun!

!BEER for later 🙃

Thank you so much, Joan, for the nice compliment on the photos, and for the kind wishes.
I wish you and your family also a happy and healthy New Year 🤗

Photography is always superb, poem very meaningful as we seldom romanticize arrival of snow.

When snow falls in South Africa we become lunatics, with many driving hours to just see the white fluffy stuff. Ja ja, we lose our heads!

Cheers to 2021 with a toast of !BEER and good wishes.

A walk in the snow is always kind of romantic, at least when you don't walk alone ;)

People lose their heads here too, because if the roads get only a little bit white they forget how to drive a car 🤣 but the more it snows the better it gets, because most who don't need to drive stay at home 😁


There's now !WINE too in addition to the !BEER 😁
!invest_vote

My imagination always goes to how quiet the area is when snow falls, walking in the woods would be fun with someone so long as they don't talk, strictly company 😌

Drivers here majority don't know how to drive on wet nor dry roads, very few have vehicles to manage roads where snow falls occur, a 4x4 would be needed more often than not. Then we have taxi's that will take you anywhere if you have nerves of steel...

Will have to look into this !WINE in the New Year, enjoy both depending on mood so for now it will have to be a !BEER

Thanks @wine.bot will have to learn more during the New Year!

Of course, That's one more reason why I mostly walk or hike alone and at places where I usually don't meet people ;)

I know, Zac @papilloncharity has told me some stories about the drivers and driving in South Africa 😉

The new !WINE works but the !tan seems not to work, at least not for me.

Fabulous color that white is as it makes everything look so clean a fresh.
Enhancing the character of each tree as frozen in time.

Really exceptional photos here my friend!

Blessings to you guys!

Hi Zac,

yeah, the snow makes all look clean and simple / minimalistic and I do really like such scenes, thank you so much.

Yesterday we have got about half a meter snow and it should become more till the weekend they say. I had only half an hour time today for a short walk and hope to get some more time tomorrow.

Good afternoon Hannes,

Apologies as yesterday we had no IT signal and about 2 hourse ago I made a plan for this slow emergency signal. Could at leasy get a post in now.

By now I hope that you have a lot of snow there for great pictures 😀

Cheers and thanks, also for the wine my friend.

Good day Zac,

I reply quickly before I go home or better said I want to go for a snow walk.
Yes, we have got a lot of snow and there's more to come they say, but today we have quite a bit of sunshine.

I don't know when I'll be back home today, so I might be online just a little while in the evening, and I'm working tomorrow till next year 😁
... but tomorrow I should have some more time at work because working is over for 2020 🤣


Cheers and !BEER

Yay! Good old year's evening Hannes,

It's been one of our busiest days, but it seems that I have got the internet connection sorted out at last a few hours ago.
So I thought that I could at last do all of the replies on Hive, but the phone rang and we had to go out again. A friend's brother in law was operated for brain cancer and they could not remove everything, so they sent him home. He has since gone lame in his legs and he cannot walk anymore.
The old lady where he lives couldn't look after him and she called my friend to come from Johannesburg to fetch him. So of course my friend called me to come and give him advice, as they want to leave at 4am tomorrow morning to travel back to Johannesburg with the sick guy.
It's a very long 18 hour trip and they are going to struggle with the lame guy in the car.

But we have solved it and they will travel in two cars.

I hope that you had your snow walk my friend and I even got time to take the sunset on the ocean tonight.
Your working for the old year should be almost finished 🤣

Happy New Year to you guys my friend!

Good morning from a cold but sunny first day of 2021, Zac,

seems the old year wanted you to be busy that you don't forget it when the new year arrives 😉

I didn't get the snow walk because some other work came in between, but there will be another day to walk in the snow.

The old year is gone and if the young 2021 goes on like it began, we will have sunshine all year long 🌞

Wish you a great start into the new year, Zac 😄


Cheers with !BEER and !wine
!invest_vote

Hi Hannes, bright and sunny over here my friend.
Thankfully the wind is also up and it will make the heat bearable.

Yes, the old year clung on for dear life, but it's finally gone and now we breathe new year air 🙏

You are wise to know that there will always be other opportunities to get shots in the snow. What needs to be done comes first and if it is work, then so be it.

All of the best also to you my friend!

Cheers and thanks!

Let's hope the new air doesn't smell worse than the air of the old year.
If so, we should try to clean the air all together 🙂

The simple shots are sometimes better than the big vistas - I love such minimalist scenes, but have to admit that I too seldom see them ;)

beautiful! I dont have, I think, even a single one photo like this. it's not high in the Mountains, right?.. maybe I will be able to catch an image like this here, one day... but I'm not sure. :P

!BEER

Right, it's not high up, just about 10 minutes upwards, but it's a quiet area where I usually don't meet people.
Slight snowfall and fog were great helpers. I think you should be able to make such photos too if there's fog and snow. I have posted photos of these trees in the past. In the background there are higher mountains 😉

We have got quite some snow yesterday and my short snow walk today wasn't easy in almost half a meter snow 😅

In winter, the photographs have their own unique characteristics that cannot be compared with photographs taken at other times of the year. This is the beauty of these photos and nature in general.
