I had to wait almost a year before I could publish this photo that I took last February for Kentucky Living Magazine. Sometimes, you know a picture is a good image the very moment that you snap the shutter, before you ever see it on a screen. That's the way it was with this one. After the shoot was over I knew which one I was looking for when I downloaded my cards...and it didn't disappoint! There was a certain majesty about it.
Minus the two Polar Vortexes from 2014 and 2015, there just isn't much opportunity for good winter shots in Kentucky anymore.
