Snow. It finally came. Boy oh boy did it snow!Â We’ve been waiting for it and even though I dislike shoveling, I am excited about it. The big snow changed our Sunday plans. Because of these changes to our plan, I was able to get out on to the Minnesota River Valley along with a few friends. Seems like others were looking forward to it too as we ran into quite a few folks out and about on their fatbikes.
I was riding my friends Mukluk as my winter Mukluk isn’t quite finished. I loaded my back pack up with some camera gear and headed out. I was particularly excited about shooting my vintage glass too. Again, I found myself shooting the old full manual, Olympus OM 135 f2.8 which is a 270mm f2.8 on a m4/3 camera.Â My other lens for the day was a 50mm f1.4, a technological wonder with autofocus and incredible sharpness. I wanted the long view and the shallow depth of field. I really love this set up and I find myself going to it more and more. I guess I am just in the mood to shoot long and think about the unknown that lies ahead.
I could have stayed out all day shooting and riding. It was quite possibly my best day of shooting and riding that I have had in 2012. I of course am a bit too close to the images to be truly neutral, but yesterday’s photo session provided me no less than 20-30 outstanding images that tell a story. A winter wonder land story. So this week is dedicated to the winter wonderland. Here’s one more for today. It’s one of my favorites of the day.
Come on back. I’ll have winter wonderland images all week. Hope you enjoy them.
