A friend, keenly interested in photography, always relishes and longs for the kind of weather this week has held, a kind of weather that changes our landscape causing it to become a photographic marvel. Hoar frost, the grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor that forms in clear, still and cold weather, has attached itself to everything. Texture, depth, light and shadow all change with hoar frost’s whitening – our corner of the world becomes delight for photographers.

Quote to Consider – “I wish that all of nature’s magnificence, the emotion of the land, the living energy of place could be photographed.” – Annie Liebovitz

Listening to – Carrie Newcomer’s ‘Abide,’ ‘The Gathering of Spirits,’ ‘Room at the Table,’ ‘Betty’s Diner,’ ‘If not Now’ and ‘Every Little Bit of It.’
