We had a few inches of heavy snow Thursday night – with temperatures above zero in the foreseeable future it’ll likely be gone within a few days but this morning it’s still there. You can see lots of small footprints in the snow – many more than in previous weeks, so I’m thinking a lot of critters have come out of hibernation and are looking for food (aka spring bulbs…) to munch on. The woodpeckers are hard at it as well, we can hear them all day, and there seems to be plenty of bugs in the dead or dying trees around us.
I asked an experienced nature photographer, Bill Johnson, if he had any tips on shooting in the winter, when all is snow covered and rather bleak looking. He said try black and white, so I have.
Here’s my Six on Saturday, with thanks to The Propagator for this theme idea.
