Beautiful! B/W is always so gentle on the eyes. And I can see details that are sometimes lost in the buzz of color.

That wall is so tempting, I am not sure I could pass up walking on it.

lovely capture.

These are really nice. I especially like the first one.

Martha Z said...

More great shots. I enjoy the skill and artistry in your work. I enjoyed the shots of the blue birds as well. Here they are checking out the bird box and thinking of starting a family. The hawks are courting as well. It doesn't matter what the calendar says, the birds say it's spring.

I agree with the others; the BW effect really adds a new dimension. Great choices!

Beautiful....Spring house....reminds me of my childhood on a farm where we had a spring house to keep things cool in the summer. Wonderful memories you instilled in me today.

Just looking at that wall is making my feet twitch. Need to take off socks and shoes and go dancing on that wall!

For a bit of sheer magic, stop on over for today’s WW.

I love this perspective of the Springhouse. Both of these are very beautiful pictures!

Carolyn Ford said...

Great reflection of the spring house! Nice black and white for these scenes. I, too, find that wall quite appealing...but, I would want to sit on it and just gaze at the surroundings.

Bengbeng said...

i like the effect of the reflection

These are beautiful shots. I love B/W photography, and scenes like this are why. Wonderful composition, and beautiful subject matter. Kathy

Interesting shot, with the curved wall leading the eye back to the somewhat indistinct subject... it makes me curious about where it is!

Spring is what we are waiting for.

awarewriter said...

Your first shot has an interesting perspective. Brings the viewer into the image nicely. I like the way the tree branches are defined in the second. Nice shots both.

Dragonstar said...

Both beautiful. I like the first particularly.

NatureFootstep said...

beautiful monochromes. Especially the stonewall, or what shall I call it?

leonnybg said...

Excellent black and white photo. :) Thank you!

Sistertex said...

Nice...is that a wall...or some sort of division between water ways? Very nice
