Now, if you know me, you know that I am not a winter person. Sure, there are moments when it is nothing short of a beautiful time of year, but overall I hate the cold and thus hate the freezing temps of winter. This new year, I am making an effort to go out and photograph whenever I have the chance. On this particular day- I simply couldn't resist the urge to go outside. Here are some of my favorite images from around the Lakes Road area of Monroe, NY.
