Lessons in Light on a Cold Winter’s Night

Now that’s what I’d call a chilling landscape photo if it was, in fact, a photograph.

It’s not.

It’s a painting by Gerhard Richter and part of a collection of his landscapes to be published next spring by Hatje Cantz: Gerhard Richter: Landscapes with text by Dietmar Elger, Hubertus Butin.

It’s the wise photographers who studies the work of painters for invaluable lessons in light.

An appropriate image for the current weather pattern.
