The frolic architecture of the snow

I like b&w photographs, but I'm not able to take them, there is just something missing in the way I see the world. However, I tried out the "dynamic b&w" mode of the LX100, and the results were not so bad as I feared they would be. So, here is a gallery of winter photographs, in black and white.

(Posting title is from the poem The Snow-Storm by Ralph Waldo Emerson.)

Great photos! I like the contrast between the black background and the light in the foreground. Did you use tripod?

Thanks, Francesco! These were taken handheld, ISO 800...ISO 3200. In some cases I took several photographs to get one that is reasonably blur-free.
