Photography like this can be quite fun (if you stay warm) when you look for interesting textures, lines and patterns. (Kirsten, this photo below is when you passed me on the road.)
For the above photos, I decided on just driving out of town, since the 5 degree weather (and -10 wind chill) was a little much. The next day the weather was a balmy 15 degrees, so I ventured a hike to Parfey’s Glen; a recently re-opened "canyon" that was washed out a couple years ago. I think I will defiantly need to head back there in the spring.
Like everything, photography takes doing and experimenting.
