More Winter Landscapes

Once you have truly found your focus for beautiful spots around you, rain or shine, you find good places to photograph almost everywhere. I believe that before this winter comes  to an end (at the Arrow Lakes winter follows very well the seasons posted on the calendar), I will find a few more pictures to create another post or two. I hope you will continue to enjoy viewing the images. By the way, I do a bit of post-processing with Affinity Photo, a powerful editing tool available at a reasonable cost.

To gauge a little more accurately the scores for the pictures for last week’s photos, I used a mathematical approach with the following formula. First, second and third choice was given 5 points, 3 points and 1 point respectively. There were more than 20 participants for last week’s evaluation, which yielded the following results.

  • #1 – 15 points Fungus Covered Branches
  • #2 – 30 points Berries Ready for the Picking in Winter
  • #3 – 44 points Cattails above a Frozen Pond – First Place
  • #4 – 33 points Thriving Ground Fungus
  • #5 – 27 points Seed Pods over the Arrow Lake

You are invited to evaluate the photos again. Simply write down 3 numbers indicating your preference, like 4-1-3 for example. Have fun!

Nature’s Amazing Art Work

Last week we looked at some wintry photos revealing the beauty of our area in the West Kootenays of British Columbia, Canada. Today our focus will be on the amazing shapes and forms that Mother Nature can produce in the winter. Again I present five images to you. I would like to find out which ones my readers like best. Although always welcome and appreciated, no comments are necessary. I numbered the photos, so it would be easy to give a quick personal assessment. Just use three numbers in the order of your preference. Have fun! Enjoy!

The Most Liked Photo in Last Week’s Post

There were fifteen people of my followers at WordPress and FaceBook, who sent in their evaluation of last week’s photos. Most stated that they found all pictures equally beautiful, but if pressed they would choose …. It turned out that picture #4 (Fauquier Twilight Hour) had a slight edge over the other four. Here is the winning photo:
