Fresh snow requires taking pictures. It just does. And it typically doesn't require driving far to find some nice scenery, like this morning when I drove less than five minutes to the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield.
South Platte Park, there was virtually no color to be seen. So taking it out of the equation and focusing on texture, pattern and contrast in most shots and displaying them black and white seemed like the proper course of action, as with this view of Deer Creek.
There actually were some scenes on an otherwise monochromatic morning where a splash of color got involved. Check them out in Part II!
