Winter Photo Walk

Frozen River by Jordan Loehr

The other day my husband and I went for a walk.

It was a sunny, only slightly chilly day. We had spent most of our weekend on the couch being lazy and knew we needed to get some exercise in and take advantage of the nice weather.

So my husband grabbed his camera and off we went to the Bow River Trail.

We walked, we scampered, we slowly meandered. We just enjoyed each other’s company and the unique winter scenery of ice, snow, trees and flowing river.

We stopped often to take photos of trees, of the downtown core in the distance, of the ice and snow.

Have you ever gone on a photo walk? Grab a friend, your significant other, your kids, and a camera and just head out. Start walking down your street or along a pathway nearby and take photos of anything that draws your attention.

Photo walks don’t have schedules or plans. They just capture life. Snow, ice, trees. Smiles, playfulness, footprints.

Go ahead, try it. It’s a fun, free activity to enjoy the company of friends and the beauty of our city.
