"Winter Birches"

"Winter Birches is one of those images where the abscence of color says as much as the presence. It is interesting to see how very much the mood of the composition is changed by taking away the warm colors of the print from which this image originated, "Paper Shadows." In this version, the starkness of the light makes the day seem overcast and simplified in the flat light."
