Chicago Blizzard 2011 by Brian Gaynor

Woke up this morning to swirling wind gusts up to 70 miles per hour and 2 feet of snow.

Photo captured in Sugar Grove, Illinois.

Long an avid admirer of artistic beauty, I have only recently embarked on the process of creating art. It is a passion, indeed, and one that provides nourishment for the soul.

Thank you very much for the visit, and I hope you enjoy the final product as much as I have enjoyed the creative process.

    OMG! That’s impressive. Great shot. Our temperative in Perth, Australia today is 36C! Although I love winter, that looks just a little too cold.

  • Thanks, Joycee! I’ll trade with your weather right about now.
