Winter’s Texture

WinterTexture

Embracing winter is one of the keys to surviving and keeping one’s sanity in the cold north.  Being willing to see beauty in the ice and snow, be willing to endure the frigid temps and howling winds will open the photographer to rewarding opportunities.

It’s The Little Things

As much as the entire landscape was beautifully coated in hoarfrost, there is an amazing amount of beauty to be found when you get up close to the frost.  Although not seen in this image, when I examined it more closely, I discovered that it is made up of tiny, snowflake shaped ice crystals stuck together.

The bitter cold of winter holds us close, but does not warm the body.

Winter Soft

Although winter can be harsh, filled with hard, frozen surfaces, sometimes a gentle  softness can be found in unexpected places.  A snowdrift, sculpted by wind and lit by a cool February sun reminds us that nature can also be soft in the midst of a brutal winter.

Sending a Signal

Each time I capture one of my ice images, I spend a lot of time trying to decide on the orientation.  When it finally speaks to me, it’s usually because a message comes at me for the title.

New Year, New Photographer

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography

What better way to start a new year than to spend time with a grandchild who wants to learn about photography? He received a camera for Christmas and was excited to go out and spend time with me practicing with it. It also is a way to remind me of the basics as I pass them on to him.

Shadows and Mist

Early morning mist on Lake Superior provides a backdrop for the posts casting long shadows along the human-made construct.

Visions on Ice

During our long Minnesota winters, I search out ice formations wherever I can find them.  I may spend hours seeking these little treasures hoping to capture a few that will become unique abstract compositions.  On this particular outing, this image out of many is a standout.
