Snow Magic

by

Ken Tickner

Winter is a season that affects us all.  Cold weather can force you into a state of hibernation or, on the other hand, you can enhance the moods winter has to offer.  Weather conditions dictate how long you can comfortably remain outside before having to go back inside to warm up.

Nature provides marvelous backdrops for the venturous spirit to view and even photograph, recording memories for others to enjoy as well.  Shorter daylight hours result in less time for people to enjoy their favourite outdoor winter-time activities.

If you keep your eyes open, many opportunities can arise for recording the beauty of nature found in our cold climate.  Photography provides opportunities to make stunning images of snow falling, sun dogs, backlit hoar frost, sunsets and many other subject matters.

The images presented here provide a unique approach to viewing winter.  It does not have to be all bad- it can be snow magic!

Ken’s photography career started in 1978.  He is primarily a self-taught photographer.  He learned a lot about photography through osmosis by being immersed in a natural photographic environment of lakes and forests.

His work is available in shops and galleries in Saskatchewan or by contacting him directly via his web site: kentickner.com.
