Siouxland’s Winter Sunshine, Le Mars

18 Feb

One thing I like about winter is the light that occurs late in the afternoon. Very directional and sharp. It’s another matter sometimes braving the elements to go out and photograph in it here in Siouxland. Especially when the wind is blowing at 20 mph or higher and the temperature without wind chill is 5 or 10 degrees. When I ended my excursion out the other day in Le Mars, Iowa, I walked around a bit in its downtown area. The older buildings have a lot of character and I love the rooflines. The hard directional light gives them a nice definition, and during winter, you don’t have to wait until 9 p.m. when it is even colder, to photograph them.
