I must be delusional, because it is freezing outside. This time of year is really tough for me as a photographer. I am not a fan of the cold. Not one bit. Don’t get me wrong, the snow on the ground and the scenery is gorgeous, but I still don’t like it. And you can’t make me. You may tempt me if we get a somewhat warm spell, which brings me to today’s photos.
A good friend (and the Co-Organizer of my photo group) Angela got me out on such an adventure last year. We had fresh snow, and moderate temperatures, so I agreed to go out and do some shooting. We went to a place called Rensselaerville Falls about 30 minutes from Albany. It was beautiful. As beautiful as an icy cold stream with snow covered banks can be.
I am including a few shots that I took that day. I liked one of these shots so much that I displayed it at the TCRPMG gallery exhibit last month at our local library. Imagine this – a fresh snowfall on a footbridge, untouched be anyone else. No footprints. Incredibly serene. I really like this picture. I don’t say that about a lot of my photos, but every now and then I really like one. I called it “Walk With Me”. My thoughts were, walk with me as we make fresh prints in the snow. When it was framed with a solid black mat on the wall, it looked like you could walk right into it.
I took quite a few more shots that day, but that one was my favorite. Maybe shooting in the Winter isn’t totally horrible, but I am still not a fan. Maybe in Florida…Until then, here are a few more.
