WInter Wrap-up

Winter Wrap-up

We’ve come to the end of another Winter and here’s my Winter wrap-up. I have to say that I am a little sad. You might be asking yourself why. It’s because my view on Winter 2018 – 2019 is much different than Winter 2017 – 2018 and previous winters. No longer do I dread the cold, snow, and slush. I sort of miss it. In fact, I find myself of late and as I sit here typing this, hoping we receive a last blast before the end of this month. I don’t think it’s going to happen though. Although the Purple One says that “Sometimes it Snows in April”. I kinda hope it does. But there’s always next year if it doesn’t. 

Shooting in the dead of winter is more fun than I thought it was last year. I find it’s more of a challenge and the images are so intriguing (Pro-tip: Increase your shutter speed to catch the snowflakes as they fall). Sunsets have a different look to them as well. There’s a crispness to them that I can’t explain. I’m sure there’s some science or reason behind that, but I don’t care what it is. 

Winter is when you’ll find more groups and lone photographers out and about, regardless of how cold it is, or the blizzard like conditions. On the biggest snowfall of this year, they were everywhere. Particularly in the King/Bay street area. This is where you can get some epic shots of the streetcars, Old City Hall, and the bridge between the Eaton Centre and Hudson’s Bay. I’ve included some of those here…

And so I’ve decided to do a round-up of my favourite shots of the past Winter. Some I’ve posted to IG, some I haven’t.
I leave you, looking forward to next Winter. Enjoy!

Until next time…
