I am Done with Winter, Are You?

Last week fellow photographer DK Hawk, and I traveled to the Eastern Shore of Maryland to photograph one of our favorite places-Blackwater NWR. It was so cold, 17F, that we could hardly hold our cameras. our fingers hurt. We mostly drove around, getting out for a few minutes to shoot wildlife. Even the Snow Geese did not want to fly, but hunker down near each other for warmth.

I moved to Maryland, supposedly the south, to escape my snowy youth of Chicago and my more recent days in Minnesota, but this winter in the mid-Atlantic was cold, snowy and icy. And as we enter March, it’s not over yet.

The Chesapeake has ice, the salt marshes have ice. Everything is frozen over north of Florida, it seems. The swans have taken up ice skating, and they have had lots of practice.
