Over the river and through the Greene by 


February 8 started the snowfall that became the Blizzard of 2013. During the daylight hours, there was little wind just a steady snowfall. Storm would wait until after sun set to stir up the wind that would turn the dark of night into the whiteout of blizzard. But by then I would be warmly tucked into the safety of home… So in this image I combined the afternoon view of snowfall around a stream connecting two ponds with my memory of the power of Nature I witnessed intensifying through the night.

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.

    Terrific image Sylvia. Love your artistry here. You pretty well evoked the essence of the storm. We also got a good taste of the storm, that hit us on its way to you. Anyway…an absolute fave. >Ron<

  • Thank you so much Ron for your wonderful comments. I was pleased how the processing on this turned out but am still challenged to try capture the true emotion of a winter’s storm as-is through the lens of my camera. Oh not that I need reason to keep venturing out, camera in hand, but that’s my current explanation. ;-)

    Beautiful image! Being originally from Rhode Island I have seen many scenes like this. Cold winter days and nights. Very pretty….but I don’t miss them at all. Lovely in a picture. :))

  • Thank you Ginny! And I know what you mean… I don’t miss the chaos and mess that dumps of winter snow bring either. But wouldn’t it be nice if we could save some of its cold to temper humid days this like. Now that would be a nice and refreshing trick. ;-)

    That would be. If you figure it out….let me know. :))

  • If I do, be certain to let you know. But, I’m not holding my breath for it…!!!
