It was a very foggy winter day. As a result, there were many opportunities to capture minimalist winter landscape photographs in B&W in which subjects fade away in the fog. The poles in this scene are old-fashioned telephony poles. When visiting the Swiss countryside, you’ll see quite a few of these. They are excellent photography subjects, especially in wintertime. This setting with the poles against a background of fog and snow creates an distinct minimalist mood. The black and white presentation adds to that. Less is often more! “Fading” seemed like a suitable title for this photograph.
Make sure to also check out the photograph titled Out of Sight. It features the same telephone poles, bit with a very different composition.
