Monochrome Winter
Bellamy Harbor Park

It feels like forever but in reality it has only been two weeks. I suppose when you generally capture an image every day, the long, silent stretches can feel like an eternity. I wish I had a better reason for the silence other than “I wasn’t feeling it.” But, that is what it amounts to. There were opportunities but I chose not to engage. Maybe I needed it, maybe it is the excuse I keep in my head…

Long Shadows

Delta Lake State Park

I want to blame the weather on my lack of photography motivation but that would not be one hundred percent true. There is a picture to be found no matter what the weather is doing. But I apparently have decided I would rather be warm than brave the cold. And when I do get up enough courage to go outside, a little wind drives me back home… OK, a lot of wind. And blowing off the lake last night, it was damn cold. Before I froze my ear off I managed to capture these long shadows working their way across the snow covered water near the entrance to Delta Lake State Park.

Morning Blues

Bellamy Harbor Park

It has been too cold and I have been unwilling to brave it the last few days. I do not like being cold. So instead, another look at Bellamy Harbor from last weekend…

Bellamy Winter View

Bellamy Harbor Park

Saturday is generally chore day. Laundry if needed, groceries, cleaning, etc. I’m not fanatic about it, but I like to get as much out of the way as early as possible. Laundry was complete and I was waiting for diner down the street to open for breakfast. After I top off the tank I go get my groceries. A full stomach is best as it minimizes the “extras” that come home when I shop on an empty stomach.

In between the laundry and breakfast I drove down to Bellamy Harbor for the sunrise. We received six to eight inches of fluffy snow last night and I wanted to capture the park before the white blanket was disturbed. A few more clouds would have been preferred but the serenity of this view was exactly what I was hoping to capture.

Burden

Monochrome Winter
Midday, Macro

Although the morning was full of snow the afternoon was bright and sunny. I took the opportunity to walk around the building during lunch to explore the winter landscape. With the wind blowing the snow off the roof and the plow still working on clearing the parking lot my exploring was cut a little short. I did manage to capture a few snow covered survivors…
