Dark ice

by Jean-Michel Laurenti February. 15, 2018 826 views

New England winter can be a real experience...and taking pictures at night by -22celsius is certainly something to be considered seriously...Multiple clothes layers, multiple batteries, a long preparation for a few hours of silent joy...

With a friend, we were two shadows silently capturing Boston lights distorted by the frozen waves of the Charles river...

Photography is often a good opportunity to feel alive.

Hi Meghan, thanks for your comment, for sure there are many places in Boston area that are inspiring for photographers, but it's sometimes easier to see them when you're there just for a while, and not for a long time ! 
I'll check your blog now ! wink

Hi Heike, thanks for your kind words, but I was not that far for some hot beverage smile Honestly, this is very little effort compared to what must endure wildlife photographers like Vincent Munier... Thanks again !

I googled Vincent Munier. His photos are stunning, unbelievable, fantastic !
I bookmarked his side. Thanks Jean-Michel, for drawing my attention to this talented wildlife-photographer!
