The latest February snowstorm gave New Yorkers some of the wettest, heaviest snow of the season, and the branches of this tree are excited for it to stop. I love the cold color tones in this photo, and slightly out of focus footprints in the background that make the image interesting without taking away from the snowfall centerpiece. The light and contrast on the tree is marvelous, but the thought of this storm makes me wish for a ‘fireplace’. Taken with a Zeiss 135mm f2 Apo Sonnar ZE mount lens, 15 second exposure, f/2.8, tripod.
This photo reminds me of the snowy winters as a kid in western Pennsylvania. You know that a photo is great when it can evoke very specific memories from your past:) beautiful!
