Late Winter Photography Forays

Our photo forays continue, following the transition from winter's retreat to spring's doorstep  Melting snow layers, delicate, and ephemeral ice patterns, sparkling freshets, and the earliest bloom and buzz about pussy-willows and skunk cabbage.

Bring your favorite camera (film or digital, simple or professional and join me for an afteroon of being in the 'wild moment.'  Learn to frame that experience through the lens in a way that expresses your own unique sensibilities.

Late Winter Photo Forays

Photo Foray at Great Meadows - Sun., February 13, 2-4:30 pm

Put down your shovels, pick up your cameras, and join me for a seeing journey into this unprecedented winter wonderland.  In February, I'll be offering two winter photography forays across Concord's wild and frosty landscapes, for high school teens - adult .  In an adventure of seeing, learning, and creating, we'll tune-in to the season's interplay of sparkling light and shadows, its sculpted and crystalline forms, and the "decisive moment" in picture making.  Tips on composition, lighting, exposure, and depth of field will be shared along the way.  Bring a digital or film camera with which you are familiar.

    Feb. 6th sunset at Great Meadows

    A continuing series of monthly walks exploring the landscape, plants, and seasonal wonders of Great Meadows NWR.

    In February, Great Meadows becomes an ice kingdom.  Frozen layers reveal worlds within worlds and bring heaven to earth with the sky reflected underfoot.  Walk with me in the ice bound floodplain and discover the exquisite beauty winter brings to the riverside.  Bundle up, wear appropriate footgear, and grab those hand and toe warmer packets.

    No pre-registration required.  A $5 donation will be gratefully accepted.

    Blizzard Birds

    Mr. Cardinal, glowing like an ember in the snow
    Our sense of place can be defined at the window.  Here are some photos of my encounters with wild and feathered ones during the last few blizzards.  All the photos were taken from our second story kitchen and bathroom windows, http://picasaweb.google.com/khadro06/BlizzardBirds#.
