Ryssby Church Christmas

With our recent snow storm, I was getting a little cabin feverish, so I ventured out one afternoon to shoot the Ryssby Church again, looking for new angles, fresh snow, and that warm soft wintery light glow…

And this is what I found…

Milky Way from Lake Maconaughy

I spent some time late at night while camping on the lake a few weeks back to capture the Milky Way. Just playing around, but I think I’ve found what works and what doesn’t. Here’s one image that I liked out of the dozen or so I shot.

Ryssby Church in the Snow

I love this little chapel on the West side of Longmont. But there’s really only two sides to shoot it from: the West and the South, due to these little posts. There are four light posts that surround this chapel but only the two on the South side are ever lit. Having said this, it’s a challenge to get a different look when shooting from the same sides and angles all the time.

Here I’ve tried capturing various (and differing) compositions – hopefully appealing too.
