Artist's Description

A week after the Blizzard of 2013 dumped 2 feet of snow on New England, 5 more inches fell on Boston. Though much kinder than the blizzard, gusty winds and thick clouds lingered longer making an afternoon walk along the river a lonely adventure into blowing snow. I reached the Hatch Shell along The Esplanade as the sun was setting and the heavy ceiling of clouds was lifting ever so slightly. To my astonishment, that narrow corridor of sky quickly filled with light so hot and bright the horizon was set ablaze, radiating warmth onto the icy cold surface of the Charles River.

Silhouettes of Kenmore Square and Boston University on the south (left) bank and MIT on the north (right) appear to merge as you look straight down the Charles River. Below the glow of the setting sun, what looks like mist is actually snow caught by strong winds, whipping across the surface of the river

A moment of stillness, between gusts of wind…

A few moments later, in a strong gust of wind-whipped snow…
