Winter…

I couldn’t love you more!

It’s an illusion that photos are made with the camera….they are made with the eye, heart and head.

Henri Cartier Bresson

Some week-ends are perfect.

Single digit temperatures, sunshine, glittering snow.

A great friend, a great meal, a great evening with Viggo Mortensen.

Perfect light for perfect photoshoots.

Nature at her absolute best and painting exquisite intimate landscapes upon the canvas’ that I presented to her.

Winter…the most beautiful of seasons.

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day…

and I’m feeling good.

Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.

Pietro Aretino

I am rendered speechless by those who say that they hate winter and can’t wait for spring.

Every single day is different in the winter landscape. The angle of light is low and the reflection off of snow if you’re lucky to get some, turns the outdoors into a studio!

Pinks, blues, and purples abound in the most harmonious blends and the intimate landscapes are filled with snowflakes, ice, and frost.

On this morning fog lifting off of the lake lent atmosphere and added a hazy beauty to the bridge that our town is well known for, all bathed in a wash of pinks and blues.

There are moments within every day if you keep your eyes and mind open and aren’t afraid to bundle up!

It’s also a new year…where will that take you?
