December begins …
FRISCO — OK, so it’s not quite winter yet. Officially, that season begins on the day of the winter solstice, according to the celestial calendar. On the other hand, meteorologists start the winter season on Dec. 1, so by that measure we’re a few days into the season. Either way, the light is stunning this time of year. Even mid-day, the low angle of the sun casts long shadows and creates gorgeous golden glows on dried grasses. It’s actually a bit unusual to be able to photograph so much bare ground under these light conditions. Usually by the first week of December, there’s already a good solid coating of snow on the ground, but not this year … C’est la Vie.
Many of the images in this slide show are available in our Fine Art America online gallery, and there’s also Summit County gallery at our ImageKind website. You can also order images by contacting me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
