    Dull Weather and Sunshine

    Last Sunday the sun showed up several times in the morning. After the weekly shopping it started again to snow and the sun disappeared. Nevertheless I went out after lunch to take a few pictures at the Greifensee. This time I went to a location close to Maur on the other side of the lake, usually not a good spot in the afternoons (sun in the back). But as it had no sunshine it didn't matter. As I arrived at the lake it was still snowing and freezing cold. So I exposed only the half of the film holders. Here the results. The texture is a digital blend of a scanned Japan paper.

    Fuji Cherry Blossom 5x7 camera, FL 120 mm, PH 0.35 mm, Fomaspeed S312 photo paper rated at 12 ASA, developed in Centrabrom, exposure times 4 to 5 minutes

    On the way back home passing the north-west part of the lake suddenly the sun appeared between the clouds and the sky cleared up. The rest of the lake was still under a cloud cover. So I stopped and exposed the rest of the holders.

    The reflections of the sun in the water was a little bit too much for the latitude of the photo paper. But this shot had been difficult even with film.

    Now without the reflections it works very well.

    I overexposed this shot a little bit to get more details in the darker areas. I think I prefer the previous picture.

    really beautiful images rene! I agree about the darker tree, there is more of it and mor character to the shadow on the ground. i also am very fond of 2 and 3 from the first group, i think the contrast of the manmade elements with the natural works very well

    you get a lot of snow in switzerland! I consider it lucky if there is even an half an inch that sits on the ground here.

    Isabella, many thanks for your very kind comments. Yes, this year we have a lot of snow also in the flatland, in fact we have more snow than in the last five years together and it will snow again the whole next week. So I have to go out as often as possible to take "snow" pictures of my favorite "hunting" grounds, although I hate the coldness. :-)
