Day 18 – Hundred Day Photo Challenge

What’s the saying? You can’t make a silk’s purse out of a sow’s ear. Well, that doesn’t mean you can’t try. As I left home this morning I wasn’t thinking of this saying specifically but the general thought was there. I knew I had flat light to deal with along with really fine, wind-driven snow to deal with. It seemed logical to not be thinking about focusing on grand landscapes. My first stop was an icy marsh I call toad hollow. I really don’t know what it’s real name is but it can be a great venue at sunset. So, I wasn’t thinking about grand landscapes. Looking back I think I was operating with the sow’s ear/silk purse. That meant I was trying hard to see lines, triangles, textures, et al.
