Marlborough Nightful of Snow and Light by 


For the third consecutive weekend, snow fell in Boston. Between each snowfall, temperatures warmed unseasonably to help naturally dissipate city streets and paths. After a weekend of rain, seemed the city might sneak by unscathed but in the final hours of Sunday night, rain changed to accumulating snow. The view out my Marlborough Street window, framed to one side by a hulking pine tree, was soon blanketed with snow that captured, magnified and reflected every ray of light. At the stroke of midnight, a city night turned into a day in a winter wonderland.

During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    I love this!!! Such a great angle and the end effect is perfect :-)

  • Thank you Trish! Didn’t have much choice on the angle. Had to wedge myself on the edge of my kitchen window to get a view beyond that big pine tree on the right. But I liked how it’s green needles added color to this white night. I love how bright everything gets on a snow covered night. And just thrilled you enjoy it too! ;-) …Sylvia

    cool angle for a picture. nice ;)

  • So pleased you like this one Manon! Sitting on the corner edge of my kitchen windowsill, this is the angle and view I get from the second floor. The snow definitely adds some whimsy to my usual city-scene. ;-)
