The South Forty is the nickname I have given to our backyard, which is actually a wooded double lot. It is like having a miniature wooded acreage in the city. This early spring period is a great time for black-and-white photography as there are a lot of lines and sharp edges owing to the foliage not being fleshed out yet.

These photos were all shot on an iPhone Xs using a high-contrast noir filter with an f/1.8 aperture, an average focal length of 4.25mm and an average shutter speed of 1/1427s.
