I’ve been posting to the blog about show openings and such, and I’m behind on the new photos. The cheese and crackers is all very fun. I had a great time at the Athenaeum show opening in Boston, and the reception in Thetford Vermont (come meet me if you are local!) will be fun too. But there is quite a backlog of new material, as usual.
I won’t get philosophical or any of the somewhat usual ruminations, just point out a couple from one day in the field.
I know of a little ravine that has water falling over the edge, and in the winter it freezes and freezes. It’s a bit slower a flow than a real “waterfall.” I think a waterfall is disruptive to this kind of ice formation, though of course it has its own charm.
I headed out at 9 in the morning, with a lot of my gear, some almonds, half a chocolate bar, and a thermos of tea. That tea was very very good, more appreciated than when I have it at my desk. I was glad to have the tea, because I worked through three Sony batteries and didn’t finish making exposures until about 5 PM. It was rather chilly, though already late winter.
The light in that ravine is generally soft, with some strong beams at times. It’s workable, and very nice.
These days (a perspective subject to change) I tend to think of my lens selection as “Zeissy” or “Anti-Zeiss.” This day was very Zeissy.
Then looking down:
