Truck in Snow
I'm always surprised when the thing I want to avoid becomes the thing I choose to shoot. Standing on the front step, the snowy scenery was beautiful. However, our snow-covered, muddy truck was in the way of the scenery, at least from my vantage point. Then I realized, forget the scenery, shoot the truck. It is a high contrast image. The texture of snowflakes adds continuity. The black and white treatment obliterates the fact it is dirty an muddy. I was truly surprised at how much I like this image from an artistic standpoint. Not cropped.
