Winter….I guess I’m going to need a coat

Photographing ice is more difficult than it looks, tiny changes in light make huge differences and it’s never as striking as live. There’s no denying the time of year though….cold, wet, full of crazed holiday things, shortened daylight and a rapidly developing case of stir craziness for both me and the dogs……
However, the angle of the winter sun means more hours of interesting light, long shadows, subtle highlights, no harsh over heads. It’s a joy if you can get the timing right and not freeze.

Walden, NY, mid afternoon. I would have to wait until evening for this in the summer. Even in the middle of the day winter light is often soft/subtle in a way that it rarely is in the summer, it’s just so damn cold sometimes…..

Beware the Christmas inflatables are coming……
