Winter Sunset at the Dreamkeeper Pond
Cattails like paint brushes reach up through evening glimpses of muted light and cold color towards a charcoal watercolor sky.
Cattails along the ice-covered Dreamkeeper Pond bask in the last falling rays of an evenstar.
A magnificent ending.
These three photos were all taken on the same day at Mapleside Farms in Brunswick, Ohio.
Being a landscape photographer in Northeast Ohio can mean standing for a whole hour in mud that cakes around your boots up to your ankles, wind that keeps blowing the hood back on your winter jacket, and cold that seeps through your gloves to numb your fingers. Meanwhile, your heart and mind are alive with the surrounding beauty.
What sort of challenging weather do you come across when you go out to take nature or landscape photos? Do you make any special preparations for weather conditions? Do you enjoy the many moods of the great outdoors? What are your favorite weather conditions for enjoying nature?
