#SeeingRedSeries Hiking through the woods and found a great serene spot for tree/landscape photography. As I kept shooting, eyes glued to the viewfinder, a lady on snow shoes unexpectedly waltzed right into the scene. Score! A great view got even better. Shot in IR and post processed with standard channel swap with supercolor 590 nm... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRedSeries I took a picture from the exact same spot 15 years ago using a film camera, also after a snow storm. Revisiting the composition again, this time in infrared. So interesting that the trees are leaning sideways even more than back then. This is one of my most favorite places to shoot in winter.... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRedSeries Got another 4" of snow today and took a quick hike through the woods. Sun wasn't anything special for IR, but enough crept in through the clouds to make it worthwhile for shooting, and the trees looked like out of a fairy tale land. Post processing with standard channel swap.

Hardly anyone is crazy enough to drive through the forest on a Tuesday evening in this storm, but if you are crazy you get a view like this all for yourself. Sterling Pond is quiet and beautiful every winter. Worth ten frozen fingers and chattering teeth this season. Will be back here soon...

A boring rusty bridge rail in summer turned into a legit cool-looking creation in winter. The entire bridge is covered in this. Not much else to add other than to watch. Morton Arboretum, west branch.

I suspect this one's not gonna buff out... I wonder what got him so worked up? The color?... Continue Reading →

Yes there is beautiful snow, yes the drifts make an awesome spectacle during sunset, yes our backyard looks like winter wonderland and yes my fingers felt like they were ready to fall off within those two minutes while I took this picture with my phone, which literally froze in that temperature as its battery completely...

#SeeingRedSeries Winter on Lake Michigan at the Monroe Harbor just east of Millennium Park, void of any boats or people, yet not frozen over. Winter had been unseasonably warm this year, up until now. Shot in Infrared using Converted camera with LifePixel super color filter.

Yep, this was a good walk on a day off. The only people  one would run into would be Arboretum's own patrol. All-you-can-eat buffet of crisp fresh air.
