Winter is not my favorite season…yet. I must admit though, that when it comes to photography, it is definitely climbing the charts. It’s peaceful. Magical, when it snows, and lets face it, the ‘no bugs’ thing is a huge draw. Being able to walk through groves and forests without face planting into a spider web is awesome!
I know, the snow and ice wreck havoc on people’s driving abilities and the cold can be downright bitter but if you have to endure three to four months (and in some cases 5-6) of this stuff, why not try to find a bright side? Is there any better time to curl up with a warm blanket, and a cup of hot chocolate and watch White Christmas?
With the popularity of social media, snowman building has taken on an art form, sitting in front of a crackling fire and sipping hot apple cider brings back some of my favorite memories and watching kids (and some grownups) light up with excitement as they create snow forts or a sort of luge track, as was the case this last week, all make the inconvenience of some bad traffic and donning the extra layers so much more worth it. At least for me.
Capturing a bit of the magic in a snow filled photo is just the icing on the Christmas cake.
