As the nights grow longer and the days grow shorter I start to think of fall and winter and the opportunities I will have with photographing my subjects in snow. It can be a challenge to get exposures right when there are fields of bright white snow but it really isn’t much different than photographing a Black Skimmer landing on the sugar sand of Fort De Soto.
I photographed this Chukar last January as it walked across a field of undisturbed snow, as I recall it was bitter cold that morning but the bright sun seemed to warm the Chukar as much as it warmed my hands.
The trees are starting to change in the high country now and soon there will be a riot of yellows, oranges and reds of autumn leaves creeping down to the valley and after that will come the snow.
