I’ve come to realize something about myself‚ lately, I just love detail shots.
There was a crazy snowstorm yesterday so it was the perfect time to go outside and take pictures.
I took about 10 shots of various scenes but when it came time to select just one image, I gravitated toward this detail shot below. I had no ‘goal’ in mind except to take a wintery shot. What attracted my eye to this shot were the lines. Lines in general are an extremely powerful compositional element when used correctly. Often they are used to guide the eye to another element in the image. In this case though, the lines themselves are part of the subject matter and they just screamed to be photographed.
