Stillness and Silence

Landscape photography is one thing I have never devoted time to learning. It always seems so simple and yet so complex!

How do you translate the sound of the wind, the frost in the air, and the silence of the snow into a photo? How do you know which part of the big picture to frame and capture in your camera? 

Photos of people are always expressive, always moving, always emotional. But the trees, snow and mountains?

They are big, still and silent.

But I realized- this is the challenge! This is the beauty. The silence and the stillness are what truly brings these photos to life. It leads the viewer to re-live that moment that they experienced this isolation and this silence and the peace which it brought.

Here's to remembering those moments.
