Winter Wonderland

Diana’s Pool :: CT

This time of year, photography time is at a premium.  The sun isn’t up for very long before I leave for the day job, and it’s down before I’m done with work.  Furthermore, winter hasn’t quite arrived yet….but I’m pining for some snow photos.


Today, I’m pulling one from the archives to share with you.  Hopefully that will tide me over until the snow arrives here in CT.  Hope you enjoy! 🙂

    Beautiful winter scene. Winter is for night shots! Especially when you are stuck on the job during daylight hours! 😉

      I thought winter nights was for hot cocoa and warm blankets! haha I think you’re right though….I’ll have to put my big girl pants on and go find myself some stars. 🙂

        or lights or ghosts of Christmas past 😉 You can’t let a cold and darkness stand in the way of your photography 🙂

        haha I officially feel scolded. I will have to get my but out there soon to take some shots. 🙂

        No need to feel scolded. Just saying! I seem to find photos no matter the light.

        Although there can be a bit of danger involved. I was out at dusk once, by myself, in a remote area, doing some sunset photos of the wild sky after a storm. The light was almost gone, and I was getting a few last shots of the afterglow when I heard an angry voice in the dim light saying “Put down that camera and stop taking pictures of me!” I was crouched down at the time, and I see this gang banger looking guy coming toward me out of the darkness of the trees. When I stood up he stopped dead in his tracks because he noticed that I was quite a bit larger than he was.

        I told him I hadn’t seen him and assured him I did get a photo of him, and told him it was too dark where he came from to get an photo anyway. He asked if I was using film then. I told him no it was digital, and he said he thought digital cameras could shoot photos in the dark. I assured him that they worked on the same principals as film and needed light to capture images.

        The whole time we were having this conversation, I was checking to see if he any of his buddies might be coming from the side or behind me; fortunately, he seemed to be alone, and I packed up my gear, while answering his now myriad questions about digital photography, and left. I don’t know what he was up to, but it could have turned into a bad situation.

        Gah!! I’m so glad you got out of that ok! That would have scared the crap out of me.

        It’s scary anytime someone comes out of a dark area using threatening words. I didn’t want to get into it with him, so I defused the situation, and he luckily he cooled down. Out here in the wild west, you never know what the other person is carrying, and I never go into remote places alone unarmed.

    It’s pretty but so cold.

      That is definitely the down side to winter. Why can’t we have snow and 45 degree weather? 😉

    Absolutely amazing shot. Thanks for giving me the feeling of a real winter without having to brave the cold. 🙂

      haha You are very welcome! And thank you for the kind words. 🙂
