Artist's Description

Thanksgiving Eve 2011 – or “What A Difference A Day Makes” – Deadly combination yesterday: An aging photographer driving to Saranac Lake in the early morning to see his Father with camera on his lap…first significant snow of the Fall (4" or 5") with a little freezing rain mixed in and temperatures hovering at the slush-making, road-slickening, freezing mark…Did I mention the plows? That is because they hadn’t cleared the roads yet…not even the North Country Autobahn, Rt. 458 starting in Santa Clara, where this photo was taken. I was trying to stay in the tracks of the cars who had come before me and still keep my eye out for bald eagles, coydogs, deer, and landscape photo ops…hey, the snow was sticking to every branch..it was a like a Winter Wonderland…and I was a kid in a candy store. Special thanks will be given today (and last eve) for letting me make it safe and sound…and the strength and wisdom needed to “turn into the skid”…I haven’t seen roads so treacherous in a long time….well..since last Winter :).
