Bitter Cold

     I recently took a trip to Grand Haven with a couple friends Jamie and Dave to shoot the winter landscapes and lighthouse. When we got to the lakeshore there were blustery winds and heavy snow bands blowing in. With the wind chill it was around -15 degrees and sadly I didn't last that long out shooting. I was able to get a few shots before my hands went numb and I couldn't feel the shutter button anymore. This one was my favorite from the day.

     After we left the lake we headed into the country to shoot some snow covered landscapes and looked for snowy owls. Along the way we ran into some Highland cows and with the falling snow they made a great subject to shoot!

     Unfortunately we never found any snow owls that day but we did come away with some nice shots of the wintery country side.
