Reeds, originally uploaded by Gregory Pleau.

Here’s another photo from my winter photography/geocaching outing last Friday. These reeds are poking out of the ice on a (very) frozen Guelph Lake. When I was shooting this, I was thinking black and white but of course I shoot in colour on the Nikon, then convert in post. Even with the expodisc this came out very blue but I suppose that’s the nature of snow and ice. I used a high contrast blue filter in software when I converted to black and white, then I pushed the midpoint in the levels way toward highlights to give the photo it’s final effect. I’m rather happy with this one.
