Light from the fenceline 0214_StaatsThe weather was cold yesterday – barely up to zero with a biting north wind of 20+ mph.  With those conditions I chose to work inside for the day.  I walked past the south window several times, looking at the patterns in the snow as they changed throughout the day.  Eventually they called me outside to photograph.  The sun is still relatively low in the sky, making for some wonderful lines as it slid through the fence and threw its light on our meager snow.  There were bits of leaves and tree debris that danced across the pattern, and a rabbit had made its way across the yard and its footprints slashed through the light and the dark.  Sometimes it’s the light that pulls the scene together and tells the story.
