My first colour photo in an age and there's no colour in it. I considered calling it Snow-A-Fence but couldn't live with the shame.

Only you could manage to go for a colour shot and still end up with a bw LOL Wink Mind you I do detect a touch of brown clinging to the mesh ! But seriously - I like the composition and you've captured the essence of the weather in a very simple but evocative way. All the best. Bruce

Cheers Bruce. I'd like to give all sorts of fascinating reasons why I included the leaf but the truth is I didn't even notice it until I saw the photograph Smile

Hi Michael,
there is colour in it,there's a leaf clinging to the fence that's brown and when you look big,there brown in the grasses/branches poking through the snow,grey in the fence and some leaves that are brown,so you do have colour,not just b/w,there's certainly no shame with this shot,it's great texture,lighting,detail,angles and exposure.Take care.AnnSmile

Thanks for the in-depth analysis Ann - you look at my photographs far more closely than I do Smile

Hello Suzan, thank you for the mod, it's almost certainly the only valentine's gift I'll be receiving this year Smile

......or should that be :-(

Michael, I think it takes vision and an element of courage to post a shot like this - it is truly excellent and relevant to the season, and quite unlike the majority of the pictures the rest of us post (no offence meant to anyone!) I would have enjoyed your alternative title!

Watcha Michael,
Very clever juxtaposition of the mechanical shapes in the fence and the natural, randomish shapes of the twigs and branches; the brown, dried hornbeam leaf adds a subtle and interesting splash of colour.
