Monday Reflections 2

Shots from the beaver lodge across the road from my home will be featured for a few days.  I noticed in some of the shots of the whole beaver pond, it appeared to look like two lodges.  It is the lit up tufts of long grass to the left that give that appearance.

 

These were shot early evening around 6:45.

 

Here is the coloured version.

Personnellement, je préfère la version en couleurs. Je trouve qu'on y voit mieux les reflets.
Mary MacADNski: I think the colour version wins with this one.

Mary MacADNski: Same shot with one converted to black and white.

You are kiddng...right!

The clean-up team have felled some brush by the pond, and tomorrow they will be along with a truck to cart it away..

Mary MacADNski: I thought they had made another lodge till I inspected closer.
Nice! I think I prefer the color vision - I like the soft hues.
Mary MacADNski: It seems most prefer the colour with this one.
A bit different in B&W, but I really like both of them Mary!
Mary MacADNski: Straight conversion UNLIKE THE ONE WHERE i BOOSTE CONTRAST.

Let's hope there's someone at home..
Mary MacADNski: I would imagine theer is - in living colour.
I, too, especially like the color version, Mary. I hope you'll show us some real, live beavers soon! smile
Mary MacADNski: I think it would be hard to find beavers for me as they are nocturnal and I am opposite.

A lot of activity here, Mary
Mary MacADNski: There certainly is, Lisl. A grove of trees covered in water seems so strange.

I have to say that the coloured version gives more view of the beaver house... did you ever spot them? I once sat for hours to spot beavers...never saw one movement..
Mary MacADNski: Beavers are nocturnal. I have not seen this one though being CDN I have seen them. Sadly, I killed one on the road in New Brunswick years ago.
Works better in colour for me. Will we get to see some beavers?
Mary MacADNski: Colour seems to have won with the crowd so far. Beavers are nocturnal and I am completely opposite. I am asleep before they go out for the night.
Great to be able to observe them Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I see their homes but not the beavers as they are nocturnal.
Amazing how the two pictures convey totally different moods, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I have another coming up.

Best as a b&w. The lodge is a bit different from my brain image, which is built up mostly from comic books. In that image, the lodge is built from huge trees chopped down, to build a dam in a flow of water. to the dismay of Elmar Fudd.
Mary MacADNski: First to say that. Thank you. The lodge starts as a small structure. It gets larger and larger and uses bigger and bigger trees. This one started only late last summer.
very nice, captures the mood.....
Mary MacADNski: It started only last fall and is being monitored.
It must be fascinating to have that opposite your home, do you see a lot of the Beavers.
Mary MacADNski: I rarely do as they are nocturnal. We have always had muskrat so watched them all these years. The beavers or a beaver moved in late last summer. The expert believes there are two beavers.

It is amazing just what sized trees they can car down. The colour version is better for me as its easier to see the detail.
Mary MacADNski: Everyone says to be careful about them getting across here as they love trees on lawns especially as they are easier to move than trees from the wild.
Definitely better in B&W!
Mary MacADNski: Glad to hear you there, number two and I am number three.

Much stronger in B&W, the strong contrast make the image interesting and the light on the 'hut' ensures it is the focus of the viewer.I'm with Louis and Tom on this one.
