We can complain all that we want about the snow and cold of winter in the Northeast. But in its own way it is a photographer’s paradise. There is a very special pastel quality to the sky, when it is crisp and cold. This past weekend we have had temperatures in the 50’s F on both days. I made it my task to clear my driveway of the ice block that forms in front of the garage because of the snow melting off the roof. Miraculously, I succeeded and just at sunset I went out to admire my own handiwork – thinking of Shackleton’s men trying to free the endeavour. The cloudiness of the afternoon was just beginning to break up, and there were wonderful petite billowing red and magenta clouds in a blue-violet sky that silhouetted the bare trees. It was a short lived moment, but I grabbed my camera and took one image, before the light darkened and changed.
