Winter Photo Shoots


“Snow Day” © R.L. Herron

I guess I must be getting older. Winter shoots never used to bother me so much. Now, they’ve become a real pain. Particularly in my hands.

We have more snow this year than we’ve had in a long time, and it’s been bitter cold for a long stretch, too. It was three degrees outside this morning, only got to 12 all day, and it’s going to be pushing 10-below tonight. Far too cold to be out shooting pictures.

At least it is if I have to travel distance greater than the mailbox at the end of the driveway! The ache in my knuckles from the cold begins far too soon.

I’ve thought about shooting some “seasonal” photos. You know, shots taken from the same position, of the same subject, in all four seasons of the year. I’d be doing it too, if only winter weren’t so darn … wintery!
