this day the winter here was at january 24th!
Early in the morning it started snowing like mad, and in the afternoon it was so warm that all did melt away.
In between I was just in time to catch some pictures
IRecently I read that it is worth to use the flash, when it is snowing, to photograph. The snowflogs cause a nice reflection. I don’t know if I have the chance for that, this winter, but maybe it works for rain as well
A winter walk in the park, is probably not the first thing you think about, for photography.
It has some advantages tho. First of all, there are far less people,, so the chance on a (non edited) picture with just the motive on it is much bigger.
Secondly the animals have less places to hide, so they are easier to be caught by the camera.
It is that we were not always fully concentrated (the talkings are part of the deal), else we might have cought a few other intresting animals as well.
Swans, ducks, sculptures, a beautiful park for under every weather circumstances.
Nothing is more nice, for a photographer, then a sunn y winterwalk in the afternoon.
The big advantage is that the best hours of photographing, not too long before the sun gets under, are at a time that it is perfect for a walk.
Our walk along the Rhine did give a few beautiful motives, varying from boats, water, reflections and industry (the power plant). Most of the pictures I took with the standard lense for the EOS 1100. A few were made with the zoom lense (the birds)
At a sidenote.
I do not understand what the fun is from a photo shooting with a ‚just married‘ couple at the river, on such a cold day. I think that the idea is to get wonderful pictures but when it is that cold, the wedding couple can not feel happy when standing there in the mud and posing for the photographer. It might have been a professional photograph, but I think that he forgot the most important thing and that is that the people on the picture should be happy as well. Good, not of my business, he probably made better pictures then me, I will never know it 🙂
