Winter Reflections


I am trying a new, softer light (Chromalux A21) in my shadowbox this week.  It is supposed to provide a natural, balanced light.  This was my first session with it, but I really loved the reflections it created on this little silver bowl.  

There are still a few huge drifts in the yard, but most of Monday's snow has melted.  I'm looking forward to a long walk in the sunshine.  Rodeo may have to dodge a few mud puddles, but it will be worth it.  I hope you're having a great week!
