I hate winter. Mostly the cold. But I don’t get out and shoot much (not nearly as much as I should be) during this time of year, which lasts far too long. I work outside most days so it gets old very fast. After four knee surgeries they start hurting quite badly when outside in winter. Hence my dislike for being out during winter in Saskatoon.
That being said, winter offers much more dark sky and being that it’s colder the air is crisper and usually seems much for clear and sharp, which makes for better night photos. So what does one who hates this time of year do? Go out and shut periodically. This was taken during an individual photography lesson I had for a local guy who wanted to learn his new-to-him camera. Venus can be see shining brightly in the upper left over our beautiful, light polluted downtown.
