Are You There Winter? It's Me, Amanda.

Three weeks into my 52 week photography challenge, and I've already fallen behind. Oy. The flu, the death of my grandfather, the winter blahs...I have excuses, people! So today, I'm posting week 2...a traditional landscape. I was hoping for snow...some reminder that I began this journey in the dead of winter. What did I get? Fog. Lots and lots of fog...and rain. So, without further ado...

Standing atop a picnic table, waiting patiently for some signs of life to appear in this hazy, drab landscape, and a flock of geese flies honking overhead. Thanks, nature! You always come through for me! I realized I'd been standing there for 20 minutes, and I wasn't even wearing a coat. I thought back to a 2016 landscape session where I could only leave my car for 5 minutes at a time, lest my fingers fall off from frost bite. Naturally, I went back through my archives when I got home. I found the session I was thinking of. Just looking at the photos brought a chill to the air...it really was freezing. And it was April. April 9th, 2016 in Sandusky, Ohio looked a lot like what I was hoping for today...see?

I'll be playing catch up for the next week or so. I'm hoping winter doesn't have the same plans! Hope you've all managed to outrun the never-ending coughs, colds, and flus of 2017. There is some serious cuteness coming to the blog REALLY SOON! Keep an eye out!

52 weeks is a challenge and I commend you on trying to do this project. I absolutely love doing winter snowy sessions and this sun-scapes are so pretty.
