This has been quite the winter for snow! We’ve broken the record in Madison and it’s not even the end of February yet. This past weekend we were up at the camp (in da UP, eh) and I was able to escape for a nice peaceful walk along the river where there was ample snow and sunshine.
I was really enjoying taking pictures that faced right into the bright sun. Having such an intense light really added a great deal of contrast to many of my images. It was also fun to play with light and shadow on the surface of the snow.
Don’t let the sun fool you, it was bitterly cold that day. I had to be extra careful not to let my camera freeze up. With all of the electronics that go into cameras nowadays, it doesn’t take much to wreak havoc on those high-tech toys.
