From the Winter Photography Workshop

It is so nice to be able to sit down, pick up the papers and enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee. I finished my last class and now catching up with a lot of things that were put on hold while I worked on school assignments.

Here are a few images from the 2013 Winter Photography Workshop at the Ancient Spirals Retreat. The weather was great; just below freezing and hardly any wind. Lots of fresh snow with interesting patterns. As a bonus, the cloud cover cleared at the end of the day and we were able to photograph the fool moon raising behind a character windmill not far from the retreat. The black & white version of the windmill image was was created in post-processing using Nik Silver Efex Pro. The close-up image of the windmill with full moon in the background is a composite of two images taken with a 400 mm lens. Because of a narrow dept of field recorded with this long telephoto lens, I took two consecutive images. For the first image I focused the lens on the windmill and for the second on the moon. The two images were then blended in post-processing.
