Over the course of the past month I have been spending a great amount of time out side taking a lot of landscape shots. This year Ole Man winter is really giving us his best, we have about a meter of snow on the ground and over half of that has come in the month of March. One thing for sure about shooting in the winter is there is never any short supply of subjects to shoot.
Personally I love shooting in winter especially after a new snow, there is just something fresh and clean about a new snow.
One thing that I enjoy with Minnesota is the abundant wild life that we get to see even in the middle of winter. One of the most spectacular animals we get to see is the trumpeter swan.
A Minnesota staple if you will is the white tail deer and these guys are usually participants in my photo sessions which makes the anticipation even that much greater. In the second photo you can see the horns this guy had in early October, but the odd thing is to see him without in late February..
Finally for this tour of Minnesota winter I want to add the following because they just really show the beauty that we have here in Northern Minnesota all year long.
