winter

All winter long I look forward to the snow and it’s ability to change the landscape. Here are a few selects from this past brutally cold winter in the Northeast. I hope that they can help cool you on these warm balmy summer days.

About a week after Hurricane Sandy devastated New York City and New Jersey a nor’easter hit the region.  I ventured out to the park to grab a few shots being very careful of where I walked and setup.  There were a lot of trees that already took major damage from the hurricane and I was certain any trees weakened by Sandy would surely be a danger during this storm.  I set up a few shots and stayed out for an hour or so.  Just as I packed up a 90 foot widow-maker dropped with a thunderous cracking and deafening thud as it hit the ground.  It fell only about 100-150 feet from me.  I’m glad that I was cautious about picking my spot to setup! Here are 2 resulting shots from that night.  I hope you enjoy them.

 

 


Long Island City Nemo

I took this while in Long Island City around 5pm at the start of Winter Storm Nemo.

 

 


Here is a few shots that I took in the early hours of Saturday  morning.  These were taken in Brooklyn around 3am on February 9th 2013 during the Winter Storm Nemo. I geared up and headed out around 2:30am to check out the winter wonderland.  This was about 1/2 way through the storm and there was about 5″ of snow at this point. I stayed up till 5am, but nothing really changed as far as accumulation so I called it a night.  We ended up with around 8 inches–half of what they initially thought we would get.
