Ice continues to be a focus for my photography. Over the Christmas break I was able to get into the river valley and saw the most beautiful ice. It was like fabric, floating on the surface of the water, able to fold and bend in ways that I had never seen before. Unfortunately my phone battery died after only a couple of shots. The next day the temperatures dropped and the ice changed again. One of the things I love about this subject is that very thing – it is always changing.
Winter light is something else that I love. The light is softer and shadows are longer. What time of day you are taking your photos matters a little less. That works for me as I am never out and about at the same time of day. There is still much for me to learn, but I enjoy the experimentation and I am always excited to see what I can make of the photos I take.
As I look outside I see it is snowing. Time to get on the hiking boots, hit the trail and enjoy.
