Winter Calm - No. 1
Taken during one of those gentle snowfalls that coat the trees in that
magical way that makes them irresistible to the photographer’s eye.
The setting is a modest little stream near my house…
one that gets passed every day in one’s routine comings
and goings, without attracting more than a cursory glance.
Then, one February afternoon, Winter’s gentle hand transformed
it into the wonderland that says “Forget the errands! Go home,
get a camera and a tripod, and capture this moment.”
May it evoke the hiss of falling snow in a quiet forest,
and bring you feelings of peace and serenity.
With the luxury of a tripod, I was able to shoot the scenes in this “Accotink Creek” portfolio on
the superb Ilford Pan F 50 film through the 28-80mm L-Series lens on my Canon EOS-1.
While shot some years ago, this image is making its first appearance here.
It is available in a limited edition of gelatin silver prints on
fiber stock,and as a new custom printed photo note card.
