What with the holidays and all, I haven't been taking many photographs. None, actually. Now that I have been home for almost a week, I decided to pick up my camera again. But what to photograph? It's -15 degrees outside, and there is at least two feet of snow on the ground.
Luckily I have a system when I'm stymied, photography-wise: Look for the light. I forget sometimes that it's as simple as that.
Now I'm not always the hugest fan of winter. I don't mind the cold so much as I mind the layer of gray blotting out the sky. But when the curtain of cloud cover drops, the winter sunlight falls over the frozen world like a layer of pale silk. It is, truthfully, my favorite light to shoot.
Stay warm, friends. And when days of darkness begin to wear you down, remember to look for the light.
