Happy New Year to all of you !

The holidays are over and now is the beginning of a new year. And in the course of this new year there is one thing I would like to improve, one area in photography that is not my strong point, and that is landscape photography. I seem to be struggling in knowing what makes a beautiful landscape photo. Sometimes I’m sure a specific scenery will make a beautiful photo but it finally proves to be pretty ordinary, while, at other times, it is all the contrary. How puzzling !
So, over the past few weeks I have started my journey into trying to improve landscape compositions and also training my eyes to see details, sometimes small details, that can enhance and completely change a landscape. Here are a few photos.

There are some great photography books and the one’s I’m reading right now are Christopher O’Donnell’s e-books, The Golden Hours : A guide to photographing the light of sunrises and sunsets. If you want to know the secrets behind gorgeous sunrises/sunsets photos, this e-book is for you. And The Art Of Bokeh : A guide to using shallow depths in landscape photography. Christopher O’Donnell photography is simply superb and breathtaking, you can visit his website by clicking here.
It is now time for me to hit these cross-country ski trails !
Happy week-end everybody !
