“Frost Forest, Starry Night” was one of many surprises to greet me on the glass of my home’s front door. Our front porch is enclosed but unheated, and frost often forms on the window panes when temperatures linger below freezing. So, it is now a ritual of sorts for me to check and see what Mother Nature has delivered overnight in the winter months. I have to add that yes, winters can be cold in Idaho, but, oddly enough, the average temperatures in Boise are nearly identical to Yosemite Valley. We just tend to hit single digits more frequently.
In color, this image and many others in this exhibit don’t ‘work’ as well. Color can be a distraction that gets in the way of shape and form. In this case, the conversion to black and white helps the viewer make the creative leap from ice crystals to a frosty forest on a starry night.Keith Walklet: Curriculum Vitae
