Winter Doldrums

I haven’t posted anything here for sometime.  Winter has been challenging; the cold, snow, overcast days, and my own busy hectic life.  In the past I have moved my photography indoors and tried to do some unique things with inanimate objects or Christmas lights.  This year there has been much going on in other parts of my life that kept me from doing much more than getting through one day.

Photography is a challenge in winter; the cold, snow, rain, fog all play into the chances that your camera will be inside the case or inside the house.  I don’t risk damaging my camera on those days when weather is  difficult.  I have read about some photographers have the right gear to protect the camera and lens from the elements.  They go out and get the photographs of wildlife and landscapes that I appreciate and am in awe at times.  Great job ladies and gentlemen.  Thank you for being so tenacious and dedicated to your photography.  You are an inspiration and I wish I could be the same way  Unfortunately, I am not at a place financially or health wise to go to the places where the iconic winter scenes happen; Yellowstone in winter,  the North Pole, Alaska, and many others.

Perhaps this spring, summer, and fall will be the seasons when I create the photographs I have always imagined and wanted.  At this time in winter, I am just plowing ahead to get to the next day.
