Out in a frozen marsh this morning, because I have that kind of inclination on a Sunday morning. Cold enough, where it was a trick to dress warmly enough for standing still to take pictures.
Anyways, I took some interesting shots while my wife was chasing the dogs away from winter-kill deer carcasses. Some exposures of cattails that make me wince to look at them. There's my mind for you. Some macro shots of ice crystals. I'd have done some snowflakes, but in fact yesterday was warm, with a sudden overnight temperature drop. So, there are no fluffy snowflakes to photograph, but I shot some crystal structures because that's what I do on a cold winter's morning.
Chris Kiez, a hardcore photographer since the 80's, learned to take a picture before the age of selfies and cell phone photography, training on mechanical cameras and film. After years of taking photos of all manner of subjects and people, he did over a 10 year stint as a crime scene photographer on two continents. Now, he does portrait and landscape photos, and is currently distressing the world with his relentlessly, excruciatingly boring blogging. To buy what you see on this site, click here!
