January White by Philippe Sainte-Laudy
When nature dressed in white!
Equipment: Nikon D300 with 18/200mm
The beauty of nature is all around us at all times, but there are brief moments when a combination of elements present themselves
in a truly spectacular way. Anybody who is fortunate enough to witnesses one of these events will look back fondly upon the memory.
And they are even more fortunate if they happen to have a camera ready to record the event. In order to be in the right place at the right time, it is necessary to understand the complex interactions between light, weather, landscape, the tides, plants, and animals. And it is important to have a deep respect for this planet and its inhabitants. I hope that photography can bring people closer to nature and encourage them to preserve it for future generations.
