When snow covers the landscape like a white crystal blanket, it is an undeniable visual transformation. But when the deciduous forests are not blanketed in white, they are dominated by greys and faded browns; it can be photgraphically challenging.
The warm light of sunrise and sunset adds a burst of color to an otherwise bleak pallette. And reflections in the river add an ever-changing texture that is unpredictable and full of surprises.
Somedays, I happen by the river and see something interesting. On other days, I anticipate a visual image, with the sun low on the horizon or the changes in the ice.
