One of the fun things about shooting in these conditions is the soft light, and the muted details. Forms become important, rather than the details, and such weather just screams for b&w, or at least it does for me. With the backgrounds obscured by white, it becomes a dreamland where you really can't quite pin down where an image was taken.
I shot mostly film yesterday with my Nikon FG and 50mm and 36-72mm E lenses. I took along my Fuji X100S digi, and therefore have some lovely b&w scenes to share right away. Today, I was running errands, and stopped along the Huron River, again with the X100S. The scenes I was seeing reminded me of some Japanese woodblock prints. With such a serene, soft landscape, one can lose those negative thoughts and live in the moment. It was a needed break offered to us by nature.
