first snowstorm of the year

A tree emerges from the water at Big Cliff Pond in Nickerson State, Park, Brewster, MA.

Today it finally snowed. Not just a dusting or an inch or two..real snow! I love snow for its ability to transform our every day world into a sort of magical space full of curves and softness. The dirt and grit disappears and a monochromatic dreamscape replaces it. As photographers, part of our job is to show people the world in a way they haven’t seen it before–whether it’s an unusual angle, justaposition of subjects or a moment frozen in a way we don’t usually experience it. For me, snow does exactly that–shows me the world newly imagined.
