patterns in monochrome

I've always loved Ansel Adams work ( who doesn't?) and seeing an exhibition of his prints in Edinburgh a couple of years ago was hugely influential on me. In terms of finding a photograph where others walk on by, he was a master. His use of massive glass plate cameras and hours and hours of patience are not part of my arsenal however.

A recent browse through a book of his inspired me to make the most of the dull flat light that has been hanging over us for days.

27th Jan10, Howick Gardens, 8am

The first snowdrops of spring. Howick will soon be carpeted with flowers, the grounds will have an entry fee imposed and the dog will be banned, so it's a winter venue for our morning walks.

Your monochromes are lovely. Such brightness from a 'dull flat light' !
