A driving snow transforms what usually flows as the Charles River and Storrow Lagoon to a blanket of fresh snow. Were it not for the few dried grasses peaking through, you wouldn’t know where shore ends and frozen river begins.

This image was taken in the fading light of dusk. But snow everywhere reflected and magnified available light to fill an 8 second exposure with brightness and white light. With such a slow shutter speed, flakes of windblown snow “disappeared” into the landscape. Thanks to a little help from Photoshop, I was able to restore the moment to the winter’s scene it was.

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.
