Cold Weather Photography

Every so often I change the images that appear on the home page and feature a collection of photos that captures my current focus. The winter 2021/2022 collection features some of my favorite cold weather shots from past winters and serves as motivation for me to bundle up and head out with my camera in intimidating weather conditions. I’m always surprised at the beauty of the winter landscape and love the quietude that it exhibits. Braving the elements often means that I have the entire scene to myself as few people will spend time outdoors when the temperatures are colder. I find it very peaceful to spend this time alone in nature – my camera and the animals I love to photograph as my companions. It’s also more exciting to capture a great shot when I have to work harder for it. Revisiting these images motivates me to take more shots in cold weather.
