Wintertime is often thought of as grey, dreary, cold... just... not fun. Unless you really love the holidays... THEN, it might be fun. But I think we can all agree that the winter *weather* can be less than pleasant at times. Because of this, a lot of location photographers, including myself, tend to slow down and catch up on all of their posting, blogging, (packing to move to Nashville...), what have you. I thought I was pretty much done shooting for the season when the lovely Caitlin W. contacted me about doing a shoot. I was more than happy to stretch my muscles and get out and shoot with her (especially since I had just gotten a new lens I was DYING to try out!! ).
I ended up taking Cait to a trail my husband and I had hiked a few weeks prior. When Keith and I were there hiking, there was a spot that had tall grass-like vegetation that looked really awesome! From the moment I saw it, I knew I wanted to do a shoot in it, however as luck would have it, by the time Cait and I arrived to the trail a few weeks later (after a snow, and some ice, and some good heavy rain), the "grass" was all flattened down and matted together. I was bummed. ...For a second. Because instead of cool tall grasses... the trade off was AWESOME, glorious, sunlight.
I was down with that. ^_^
All I had been concentrating on during the weeks approaching the shoot, was that grass. I ignored the fact that the sunlight had the potential to be pretty rockin' because... well... my luck always has it that when I plan on shooting in awesome sunlight..........there isn't any. But I lucked out this time. :D
BOY did we luck out!
And while it was a bit chilly, it wasn't NEARLY as cold as it *could* have been, so the day was fabulous all around.
Wanna see??? :D
Here is what Cait and I ended up with from that day!!
