In dark winter days in the United Kingdom
there is often little colour in photography outside so with black and white
in mind when taking these pictures, I've experimented a little...
All the following pictures were taken in colour on the Nikon Coolpix 4500 digicam, they were then converted to greyscale in Photoshop Elements.
The Nikon does have a black and white mode
but at the time of taking the pictures I like to have the option of keeping
the shots in colour or
converting to black and white. Some of the pictures have a little 'noise' added to give an effect of 'high speed' black and white film.

barbed wire covered in ice crystals, this is actually a colour shot but shows how little colour there is in this type of picture!
coils of string and thick ice forming on grass blades
one of my favourite subjects...
