I generally start each day looking for some inspiration. We are so fortunate to live in a time where there are endless sources of free blogs/websites/tutorials to ignite us (all too often to distract us, as well). I subscribe to several of these and enjoyed photographer and author, Bryan Peterson's suggestions via Adorama.com on shooting reflections. I've read several of Peterson's books and they are filled with all kinds of great information for photographers (as well as great images). He reinforced the concept that local mentor, Michael Nelson, once recommended, that you make time each and every day to shoot, shoot, shoot.
An icy branch, finally catching Mr. Red Cardinal and a walk while it was snowing.
And a beautiful sunset from my bathroom window.
Keep on shooting, friends! And keep on getting better and better!
