Wing Imprints in Snow — Fan Of… #99

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan ofโ€ฆ” (see below for how to).

This weeks Fan Of… is wing imprints in the snow.

A couple of weeks ago we a had over one foot of snow fall in about 24 hours. The next day when I was out getting some macro shots of icicles, I noticed some odd impressions in the snow. It turned out that these were impressions of pigeons wings from when they had landed & sunk unexpectedly into the deep snow & then taken off again. In the 1st & 5th shots you can see the impression of their bodies, with the wing pattern spreading out from that point ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Nature’s Monochrome — MWM #42

Hi all ๐Ÿ˜ƒ My entry for Brashley’s MWM #42.

I was scouring my archives for pics for my latest LAPC: Winter entry when I came across these couple of shots; these were taken in colour, but owing to me being in the midst of a snow storm, they were already monochromatic ๐Ÿ˜ฒ
