Snow Patterns by Front Gate

Sometimes I say to myself, “Just step outside your own front door. Don’t go more than 20 meters in any direction, and see what’s there.” That is amazingly difficult. We had a nice blizzard the other day, but now it’s starting to melt. It was late afternoon when I went out, but it didn’t take long to become attracted to the strong light-play of pattern and design that was right under my feet.

Once again, I’m using a fairly “simple” camera by today’s standards. Well, not really. But it’s an older one, probably considered a “dinosaur” these days—and probably out of production. I think it does a great job with only a 1″ sensor. I love that the original Sony RX-10 (first edition) is weather-sealed, has a good Zeiss lens on it and a constant 2.8 aperture throughout the 24-200mm range. Macro is outstanding as well. I’ve kept it all these years because I still enjoy using it and I’m still impressed with the quality of the images. And remember, these images are crunched way down as JPEGs. The originals are RAW.

    These are beautiful images! I love the exercise of photographing something right around our property. I might need ot try that soon. Thanks for the great post and beautiful photos.

      Thanks. It is surprisingly difficult to photograph the familiar and the mundane. Well, it made me appreciate that which is right under my nose as the saying goes.

        Yes, the thought kind of intimidates me. But I like the idea of the challenge. Thanks! I love your work.
