Ball's Falls

Winter adventures are some of my favorite to photograph, even despite the cold. Even despite the fact that I fell in the snow this day. Even despite the fact that my hands were bloody frozen because I hate shooting with gloves on.

Does anyone else feel this way? Do you have special gloves that make you feel more confident in not dropping everything?

P.S. I dropped everything anyway. 

I find something magical about the way the snow looks in photographs, about the softness and crispness in the air, which you can find a way to capture in frame.  Blessed with wonderful, adventurous friends, we trekked off to Ball's Falls to wander around, shoot, and try not to freeze.

Brooke (IG) & Michelle (IG) were our models for this day, but I was accompanied by a couple wonderful photographers as well (Tyler & JR) (We even found someone to snap a group picture!)

You can find this shot ^ and more great ones at JR Kingdon's blog here!

We adventured down near the water, and back up to the church, JR made a snowangel and we all got pretty wet. But I'm excited at the winter adventures to come!
