January 2013 was certainly a good month photography wise, all that snow and ice was stunning for a time, and made even more stunning by bringing us clear blue skies now and then.
It is no secret that i disliked January, its a dark, cold, empty sort of month, where no one wants to do anything or go anywhere, too stuffed after christmas to do anything too energetic. Yet as i grow older i can finally appreciate the beauty of January, its starkness, its bitterness, its solitude, and its many surprises.
As the new year began, so did i, with a new camera. Was a shaky start at first but i soon found my feet with the new camera, testing its abilities and limits.
Who knows what February will bring! I haven't got a scooby really, but if its photogenic i will most likely capture it. February could very well be a quiet month, but i refuse to sit on my bum waiting for an image to happen, i need to make that image happen
Though February has only just began, i must admit that i cant wait for February to be over, if only because i am seeing Sigur Ros playing live for the first time in the beginning of March at Wolverhampton. As an extra treat i have booked myself into the Ramada Hotel and Spa on the outskirts of wolverhampton for the night, which now means i can indulge in a glass or two of Pinot Grigio while i watch those Icelandic elves make magic. So very excited to see them, but thats 33 days away yet and i am about to begin this photographical month properly, so its time to step away from the 'puter once again and frolic outside with my camera, make merry while the sun is shining.
