Winter Calm No.2
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 special kind of
wonderland that says “Go home, get a camera and a tripod, and capture this moment.”
And so I did on some lovely fine-grained Ilford Pan-F 50 film.
May it evoke the hiss of falling snow in a quiet forest, and bring you feelings of peace and serenity.
While shot some years ago, the photograph is making its first - hopefully, therapeutic - appearance here,
as my area along the U.S. East Coast swelters under a continuing siege of high temperatures and humidity,
with heat indexes in excess of 100 F.
