To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 282 - Frozen to the Bones

I went out with a friend to do some outdoor portraits as he's a very athletic guy who loves winter sports.  We wanted to capture his outdoorsy nature, but how much can you smile or click in frigid temperatures and knee-deep snow?  Going out in the middle of the afternoon with the sun right overhead didn't help matters one bit.  But we still got a few fun shots.

Yay for the Gorgeous Day!


And this last shot is to only demonstrate how much snow we battled on location.  I wish I could also convey the extreme cold in some way, but alas, you might as well just take my word for it!



  1. looks like it's a fun day. we were supposed to have a light dusting of snow in our valley and I was hoping i'd see some when i woke up...but it's not the case!!! it's really freezing here though...LOL

  2. Love the pics - & I do empathize with you. It's not easy to click pics on such a cold day.

  3. @Noreen: We are having great weather here - when it's not snowing, it's freezing!

    @Swati: Thank you! I guess you've recently had a similar experience. ;-)

  4. pretty awesome, you should post more photos! and wow lots of snow, pretty brave
