We are now into a new year. 2011 turned out to be a very good year for me photography wise. At the beginning of the year, I had no idea what to photograph, and with the long winter we were having, I was afraid I would miss some great winter shots. There were great opportunities out there, but most of my favorite places were snowed in, or I just didnâ€™t feel like hiking into the woods with snow up to my waist. I know what youâ€™re thinking! A true die hard photographer wouldnâ€™t give it a second thought, trudging through the deep snow to get that perfect shot.
