Photography 101: Get Out And Explore.

Along with the first snow comes wanderlust.

Blue Hour In The Land Of Snow And Ice.

Along with seasons first big snow storm came a desire to head to the mountains. A call to get out and explore I would not resist.

The sky at sunset was rather plain, yet the pastels on the horizon as the blue hour set in made for a wonderful evening high in a winter wonderland of snow and rime ice.

Success is in the trying.

Whether or not you reach your destination,

Failure is never having taken the first step.

Photography 101: Treasure

Winter Treasure.

Winter is coming.

Cold winds blow.

The mountains frosted white.

Deep in forest as the cold takes hold, icy treasures glisten.

Changing, new, from day to day on the whims of the stream.

There for the taking diamond white, jewels created of ice.

Photography 101: Landscape

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
John Muir
