iPhone in the Snow

We have had a snowy winter here in NYC.  It was messy underfoot on Monday, but beautiful above, so I took out my iPhone and began to capture what I saw:

Broadway and 95th Street

December Blizzard

When the snow stopped falling yesterday at about midday, I decided to take a walk.  The panorama when I left the house was lovely.

Then the wind began to blow.  It was a challenge to keep my lens dry.

It was too deep in most places to walk in the field, so I kept to the road.  I came to an orchard, where a stand of spruce shielded me from the relentless wind.

There was a frozen apple in one of the trees. A bonus for some lucky deer when it finally falls.

Past the orchard I was back in the wind.  There is a pond where we all swim in the summer.  Sure looked different yesterday.

The grasses were blowing wildly

 

The air above the frozen pond was filled with snow.  It was beautiful in a wild way, but very cold, so I retraced my steps in the road and headed home.  And the wind and the snow kept blowing.


Sunset on a snowy evening

My husband has been asking me to photograph the sunset from our house for years.  I recently learned how easy it is to knit together panoramic images and a glorious sunset a couple of weeks ago gave me the opportunity to begin what will be a series of images in all seasons and times of day from this vantage point.

I wish I could make it a bit larger for this post.  The tracks in the snow are made by animals.  The place is like a petting zoo in the winter, when there is less human activity around the house.
