  1. Beautiful but it looks cold and windy. I think I'll step back into Sunday's photo if you don't mind. ;)

  2. When I look at monochromes, I really wonder, what if the world was really black and white? :-) This is a nice shot!

  8. Beautiful and very appropriate to kick off November, the beginning of several months of cold and darkness.

  9. Looks like winter lit by the moon, yet is probably sunlit entering on the upper right. Lovely!

  10. Wowww, this one has everything! bare trees, the steep descent, the evergreens down below, and even a stream! It makes me think it is the setting for a fairy tale!

    "Once upon a time, a beautiful princess lived at the top of a mountain. There was a moat around the mountain, and tigers in the trees to protect her. BUT, they also kept her there, because her father, the king, was afraid someone would carry her off for ransom!"

    Uh oh....you got me started, Daryl!

  13. This has an "achy" kind of feel to it. But not in the yucky, awful swine flu kinda way. The good kind of achy.

  14. Another great photo! It has an infrared look to it--was this done with IR film or an IR filter in postprocessing?

  20. Wonderful scene. I think perhaps we've seen this deck before and that pond? Connecticut?

    What an awesome spot it must be.

  21. Why does there always seem to be more detail in a monochrome photograph?

  24. GORGEOUS! My screen is so small that the picture won't enlarge, and I'm not sure if it is wet sparkling or just light on the twiggy branches, but whatever it is, it's SOOOO pretty!

  25. That is an incredible photo, Daryl. I just want to step inside that world and feel that air. It's wonderful.

  26. monochromes are always a stronger medium and doubtlessly you have proved it once again.
    I liked the shot very much...it is very communicative in its own way!

  28. This is a superb black and white...the subject helps of course, but the whites and darks are precise and the lighting is glorious - just look at it bouncing off those branches!

    All I can say is "Wow!"

    Well, I already said more than that, but "Wow!" sums it up.

    I can hear the wind, and feel the cold flurries down my neck!
