This past weekend I led my tenth annual winter photo workshop in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. The details of this workshop have varied over the years, but one thing we’ve always had to work with is snow. Well, that was different this year. Temps rose into the 50’s the days before the workshop and more than an inch of rain fell on the region, wiping out most of the snow and leaving what was left as an ugly gray covered in twigs and other detritus. The silver lining was that a front came through the night before the workshop and temps were below 20 degrees most of the weekend, which created some really interesting ice formations on the streams and rivers in the area.

This weekend proved once again that despite what may seem like undesirable conditions, if you get out in nature, you are bound to find some photos. Kudos to my group for maintaining their enthusiasm and finding joy and beauty in what we discovered! Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend:

We got a 1/4 inch of snow Sunday morning – amazing how a little dusting changes things.

Cheers!
