A black and white version of an image I posted on the the first day of Spring at my personal blog https://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com. The gloomy nature of the weather seemed apropro of our current situation. I hope that this “Spring” leads to a better summer for everyone. Stay safe.

This is a five shot stitch from my Olympus OMD EM1 MkII and the Zuiko Pro f2.8 40-150mm zoom. The images were stitched in Photostitcher® and further processed in Stacker® and Snapseed®

We haven’t seen a snow like this one so far this year; maybe that doesn’t mean anything, but I wonder.

Frozen pond with grass

The nearby pond has been frozen over for more than a month. In that time it has partially thawed and refrozen, been snowed on several times, and been rained upon. Each event has left its mark as textures and patterns that change daily and offer an endless variety of subjects for a photographer.

Even on a hot summer day this place isn’t all that inviting.

Roadside Atraction

It’s the kind of scene most people drive by without a glance, but I can’t resist stopping to make a few exposures. I’m drawn to the textures of such images, and the breadth of tones.

An end to house and tree

The tree just gave up and died, the house is for sale and will likely be torn down; it sits an a beautiful piece of land between Woodbury and Washington, Connecticut. The tree will be removed to make way for a much grander house. I’m not sure which affects me more.

I wrote about the house on my personal blog here https://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com.

Leftovers

Leftovers, Woodbury, Connecticut

Cleaning up around the place and happened upon these remains from last year. I thought about rearranging them, but in the end I simply made a couple of exposures which I tried to develop to look like a platinum/palladium print using Snapseed on my iPad.
