How quickly time passes. Three months ago I was exploring the early ice formations on Buffalo Pound Lake. I fell in love with the icy arch above, but as everything in life – it was a moment in time that changed and soon disappeared with the melting and freezing pattern we have had this winter. This lack of permanency is sometimes difficult to grasp but thanks to my contemplative photography practice I readily embrace this fluidity in nature.
Yes, I realize that this blog’s original intent is to document my personal travels. I haven’t ventured too far from home lately but my near daily excursions onto the ice on Buffalo Pound Lake this winter kept me focused on photography. While the ice is beginning to melt I navigate the hills and roads along the lake actively looking for signs of spring.
I have spent some time in the studio organizing my photographic equipment lately and realized that I have not shared much about equipment that some consider peripherals. Here are a few things I pulled out and I cannot live and/or travel without.
I am enthusiastic supporter of Miggo Products. I was first made aware of this company about three years ago when I supported their first Kickstarter campaign with a DSLR strap . My husband uses it on his Nikon D5200 when we travel. The strap helps with weight distribution of the camera and at the same time protects its lens when not in use.
The image above features two storm proof bags and the Splat portable tripod, all from Miggo. Stay tuned for several in-depth reports covering these items.
