Special Winter Photography Tour
featuring Photographers Jeroen Stel and Kristel Schneider
Winter, maybe the most thrilling and challenging photography season. Rough weather conditions combine with beautiful light, high key landscapes and close-ups.
In the winter season, and if Mother Nature allows it, the French spectacular volcano chain in Auvergne wraps in a white blanket of snow. Ideal for all nature lovers, the scenery looks different every day. For us, photographers, winter offers never-ending opportunities to try out a wide variety of landscape shots as light becomes magical at that time of the year.
‘It will be a unique photography experience, as we will travel on snow rackets and dog sleds in the heart of the beautiful Auvergne volcanic countryside’ – Kristel

First I wish you all a Happy New Year with lots of great photography moments!
Between all these nice dinners and kitchen table talks I took some time to walk in nature to get a fresh nose and capture some winter-shots. One day I was out around 4 PM and the sun was on its way down. Tree branches and grass where covered with ice and snow and the low shadows created a nice atmosphere. I decided to put the tracks from a tractor (?) in the frame to create a ‘eye focus’ lines in the image.
