Winter’s Last Stand

After waking a couple hours before sunrise I decided to venture out even with temps well below zero. Came away pretty pleased with a few of these images as I looked for unique compositions in the snow. Have a feeling in a couple more weeks it will all be gone and I’ll be yearning for spring colors and new adventures beyond my hometown:)

Lima Ohio

Some urban images shot around locally in the past couple months. I prefer and enjoy shooting nature but lack of travel opens up new opportunities.

A slight long exposure with intentional movement for a ghostly feeling.
Abandoned business as seen far too often around here.
The downtown square with early morning snow.
Long exposure of the refinery and south bridge.
Vintage signs on this old brick siding.

Winter In BNW

Winter scenes and snow just seem to lend themselves to black and white. I can’t help but to keep trying different compositions around! Taking full advantage when we have recent snowfall but at the same time looking forward to those spring colors and fingertips that aren’t frozen after 5 minutes lol.

Winter Light

The sun doesn’t seem to make too many appearances in rural Ohio this time of year so when it does I try to take full advantage! All images take in local parks surrounding Lima.

I liked the way the light touched these trees.
