New Work by Jim Sincock

Before the snow and deep freeze hit, I was out photographing at the Nicholson Wildlife Refuge in Caledonia, Wisconsin. The unusual amounts of rain we had over the summer, and through the fall, really changed the landscape there. The water in this scene had been an old road grade which was part of the hiking trail in past years. This year it seems it is more of a canoe trail!

Since moving back to Wisconsin five years ago, I have watched certain areas turn into wetlands, and in the case I watched the existing wetland expand.

I am pleased with the way this image turned out, especially once I worked my contemporary Pictorialism magic on it.

I love waking up to a nice sunrise, but sometimes I enjoy a foggy morning even more. Earlier this week we had a nice foggy morning and I grabbed my camera gear and headed out to River Bend Nature Center in Racine. I managed to photograph for over an hour before the sun broke through the fog and before the mosquitoes came out in force.

This image is perhaps still a work in progress since I am still working on getting the right feel. I’m using my Pictorialist style on the image to further enhance the dream-like feel I felt while out photographing that morning.
